Single Trigger Employment Agreement

The acceleration allows companies to continue to encourage retention during the period of prohibition on return on equity and allows companies that have just acquired new real estate to avoid large cash payments that can result from a single trigger. This is why the trigger conditions for founders and key employees will likely appear in all mergers and acquisitions (M&A) negotiations. Acceleration with a single trigger, based on involuntary dismissal, is a little more unusual and leads to another set of problems, because the exercise is not so much about the employee being efficient enough to keep his job as the financial consequences of his departure.
