Protecting Employee Rights in Stock Option Agreement Disputes

At many high-tech companies a significant portion of an employee’s compensation can consist of stock options. Stock option rights agreements, however, may contain vague language that leads to disputes when employees to exercise their rights, and specifically when they can seek to sell stock they were promised. For example with startups, when they grow and move to issue an IPO, senior management may look for ways to improperly prop up stock value by denying requests from employees to approve stock transactions.
