- Are officers or employees of the branch prohibited from acting as a deputy or having the right of access to safe deposit boxes, except own or one rented jointly with a member of family?
- How many weeks pay will you provide and how many days notice will you give to terminate an employee whose services are no longer needed or who has an unsatisfactory performance?
- Is there much difference between rounds depending on the types of organizations participating, say, between deals with family offices versus sovereign wealth funds or the like?
- What methodology is best for allocation of equity inside and outside the business (the already stated who work in your organization and the already stated who do not)?
- Do you have a buy/sell agreement for family members and if so, how do you value the shares of the stock and have you had a transaction among the shareholders?
