This timely webinar will explore the hidden risks associated with a business acquisition. John Lovett and Michael Bindner will discuss the following:

  • Employment law liabilities that could prevent the deal;
  • Identifying employee benefit issues (e.g., retirement and welfare plans, insurance plans) that must be analyzed;
  • Tools to identify and retain the productive employees and jettison the others; and
  • Unique labor issues when acquiring a unionized company:
    • Does it matter if it is a stock purchase, merger, or an asset acquisition?
    • Will you be bound by the target company’s labor agreement(s)?
    • Evaluating union contract(s) and labor relationship(s).
    • Can you renegotiate (versus “accept”) the terms of an existing labor agreement?
    • Withdrawal liability and other risks unique to multiemployer benefit plans.

After this information-filled presentation, you will know the issues to evaluate and the landmines to avoid.
