It’s the “elephant in the boardroom”
No one wants to think about it, let alone talk about it, but CEOs get fired. As do presidents, vice presidents, and even founders of companies. What separates those suffering at the end of a professional relationship from those with leverage is what they do before it begins…that’s where the sixth edition of Executive Employment Law: Protecting Executives, Entrepreneurs and Employees comes in.
The focus of Jotham Stein’s book is to help you create an employment contract with the goal of protecting yourself – think of the contract as a “professional prenuptial agreement.” Jotham’s book is your resource for what to do when happily-ever-after is not part of the professional playing deck. The book offers executives, entrepreneurs and lawyers a practical look at what the other side might be thinking and what entrepreneurs and executives need to know before entering into professional relationships (or what to do when they end).
Jotham has been helping executives and entrepreneurs protect themselves for over 20 years. He has seen many “you gotta be kidding me” situations and is intimately acquainted with the reality that no one is invincible: “even CEOs get fired.”
