2.06: Part 3 - Filer’s Employment Agreements and Arrangements

What to Report

5 U.S.C. app. § 102(a)(7); 5 C.F.R. § 2634.306

Filers report their participation in the following agreements or arrangements during the reporting period:

  • Future employment.
  • Leaves of absence.
  • Continuing payments from an employer, including severance and payments not yet received for previous work.  (This does not include ordinary salary from a current employer.)
  • Continuing participation in an employee welfare, retirement, or other benefit plan, such as a pension or a deferred compensation plan.
  • Retention or disposition of employer-awarded equity, sharing in profits, or carried interests (e.g., vested and unvested stock options, restricted stock, future share of a company’s profits, etc.).

How to Report

Filers complete Part 3 by providing the following information and any other pertinent details of the agreement or arrangement:

Employer or Party:  Filers provide the other party to the agreement or arrangement.  In most cases, the other party will be the filer’s employer.

City/State:  Filers provide the city and state of the other party.

Status and Terms:  Filers briefly describe the type of agreement or arrangement, its terms (in particular, the timing and form of any payments), and its current status.

Date:  Filers provide the month and year in which the agreement or arrangement began.  In many cases, this will be when the filer joined the employer or otherwise became eligible for coverage under the agreement.

Agreements and Arrangements That Are Not Reportable

Filers do not need to report the following as agreements and arrangements in Part 3: (1) agreements and arrangements of a spouse or dependent child; (2) agreements and arrangements with the United States Government, such as participation in the Federal Employees Retirement System or the Civil Service Retirement System; and (3) if the filer is a Nominee, New Entrant, or Candidate, any agreement or arrangement that will end before the individual files the report.

No Agreements or Arrangements to Report

The filer must affirmatively state that he or she does not have any agreements or arrangements to report.  Within Integrity, the filer would make this statement by marking the “I do not have...” checkbox.  For hard copy reports, the filer would write “None.”
