Sometimes, a company doesn’t outright fire someone, but they make decisions that essentially “push” an employee out. There are well-documented legal reasons why a person would be entitled to resign for “good reason” (also called, “for cause”) that are often found in employment contracts. The good reasons include:
Leaving a company for good reason is essentially the same as being fired for no good reason. The employee gets to keep all his slices. The company can offer to buy the slices back in an amount of cash equal to the outstanding slices, but the employee should not be obligated to sell. He should not be asked to agree to a non-compete. Again, the multipliers impose consequences on the company, forcing them to be careful about the decisions they make that impact employees. But, they can ask for a non-solicitation agreement as described above.
