Event Synopsis:

Historically, employers provided benefits to their employees to attract and retain talent, realize tax advantages, and improve performance. However, due to the growing number of factors that transform today's workforce, employee benefits and executive compensation have remarkably evolved and become more sophisticated. Given the ever-changing legal, regulatory and business landscape, employee benefits and executive compensation continues to be an important area for many companies and attorneys and practitioners need to keep themselves abreast of trends and developments to avoid potential risks and pitfalls. Canada and the U.S. enjoy one of the world’s largest and most successful economic relationships with many companies doing business in both countries. Due to the interplay between Canadian and U.S. laws, organizations with employees on both sides of the border encounter unique issues and challenges.

Listen as the panel of seasoned professionals and thought leaders, brought together by The Knowledge Group, provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the recent trends and developments in Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation.

Key topics include:

-Employee benefits in Canada and the United States, including pensions and group benefit plans
-Executive compensation in Canada and the United States, including equity compensation arrangements
-Cross-border aspects for multinational organizations, including design considerations and employee mobility
