Abstract:

One of the fastest-growing trends in business today is the mushrooming use of employee contracts for managers and professionals at almost every level of a company. This new edition of the classic Perks and Parachutes offers the advantages you need to negotiate the best employment deal possible, including stock options, profit sharing, job guarantees, and other valuable benefits and protections. Perks and Parachutes takes you step by step through the contract negotiation.

Process, using actual contracts and sample clauses ranging from the mega-deals signed by the likes of Disney's Michael Eisner to simple letters of agreement anyone can use as a basis of negotiation. The book explains what should (and shouldn't) be part of any employment deal, including compensation terms, the benefit package, how your job performance will be judged, when you can be fired, and your rights after you leave the company. This virtual do-it-yourself kit also.

Includes sample scripts for tricky negotiating situations and insider tips that will allow you to lock in what's important to you.
