What the FACAAP Is Going On Here?

http://www.brokeandbroker.com/index.php?a=blog&id=588   Just a few months ago, the United States District Court for the Southern District of California dismissed a lawsuit by three former Merrill Lynch financial advisers who forfeited $5 million in deferred compensation when they left the firm. Those advisors argued that the forfeiture provisions in several of the brokerage's deferred-compensation plans, including the Financial Advisor Capital Accumulation Award Plan ("FACAAP"), violated labor laws.

However, the other day a FINRA Arbitration Panel awarded two former Merrill employees over $1 in damages, in part,  as a result of the firm's breach of contract concerning its FACAAP policies.
