in this economy, companies are terminating employees in an effort to increase share value or simply improve the bottom line. Often it is the older, more senior, and more costly employees that are the first to go. The question sometimes arises: “Can my employer fire me to prevent my pension from vesting (thereby saving itself money) without violating the Age Discrimination in Employment Act?” The short and surprising answer is “yes,” assuming the absence of other critical allegations necessary to sustain an ADEA claim.
broker-dealers, investment advisors, and issuers of securities routinely use Form U5 to terminate the registration of an individual whose employment has ended and to notify the appropriate jurisdiction or self-regulatory organization. Employees are still subject to the jurisdiction of regulators for at least two years after the registration has been terminated and may have to provide information about the association with their former employer. The section of Form U5 that may be the most problematic concerns the reason for the termination that must be provided by the employer.
