There is a unique type of compensation option for corporate employees called ‘knockout.’ Knockout stands for share values held by company employees that lessen under a certain dollar amount, but the company keeps your shares protected. Corporations are considering removing this stock option, but the only factor not propelling this idea is that if the stock options perform well, everyone is a winner.


Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates is supporting the knockout corporate option. Jeremy Goldstein is a successful attorney who founded his own private law firm. His expertise is centered around executive compensation pay and corporate governing issues. Jeremy L. Goldstein, Esq., attended the New York University School of Law with a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree.


In 2014 Attorney Goldstein founded his boutique private law firm called Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC. The corporate knockout issue grabbed Attorney Goldstein’s attention. Granted, the knockout options are not a stock-based compensation cure-all for employee investments. A knock out factor occurs when the price of an underlying asset reaches the knock out barrier price.


Therefore, corporate investors have fewer concerns about their ownership shares until the end of the year proxy reports results are released to the shareholders. Even though stock options for employees is preferred rather than providing higher wages or more equities and benefits, knockout stock options are a better investment value for employees.
