vesting period
Explanation:
I googled "Erdienungszeit," which gets only FOUR hits! Reading through the top hit, which concerned EC-Verordnung 211/2005 from February, the English word that came to my mind was "vesting." I confirmed this suspicion by locating the English-language version of EC Regulation 211/2005. The two links below provide Google-generated HTMLs of the German and English. If you search the German for "Erdien*" and then compare the passages to the English, you'll see that the terms match. But beyond that, I can also tell you from my own knowledge of the term "vesting" that it matches "Erdienung."

The verb is TO VEST: an employee may exercise stock options only after they vest.
