Handling Employment Law Disputes Nationwide
Forgivable loans are financial instruments that employers use to incentivize employees to stay with the company and also encourage them to perform at a higher level. Employee forgivable loans are often stretched over a period of time and for every year the employee remains (or any other agreed period), a part of the loan is forgiven. The net result is that if the employee remains in place for the agreed period of time, then the entire loan is forgiven.
However, disputes can often arise regarding the terms of forgivable loans. When this happens, it is crucial that you hire an employment dispute attorney to represent you and help settle the case on favorable terms. At Weltz Law, our legal team has years of experience dealing with employee forgivable loans and we understand what it takes to win in these types of cases.

Understanding Employee Forgivable Loans
Employee forgivable loans help to incentivize employees not to leave a particular employer. A good example is an employee forgivable loan of $50,000 that is spread over five years. The employer then agrees with the employee that for every year that the employee remains in employment, the employer exempts (or forgives) the employee from paying $10,000. This means that if the employee was to leave after one year, they would have to pay $40,000. If they were to leave after three years, they would have to pay $20,000 and so on.
Given that this is usually a contractual agreement, there is always the possibility that disputes may arise. This is what leads to employee forgivable loan cases where the two parties may dispute the terms of the contract.
