|Restructuring and Other Charges||
In the third quarter of 2022, the 2022 Restructuring Program was approved to rebalance our workforce and operations to create efficiencies and improve our product execution in alignment with our IDM 2.0 strategy. Restructuring charges are recorded as Corporate charges in the "all other" category presented in Note 2: Operating Segments within Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements and are primarily comprised of employee severance and benefits arrangements. As of October 1, 2022 we recorded $537 million as a current liability within Accrued compensation and benefits on the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets. We expect these actions to be substantially completed by the end of the first half of 2023, but they are subject to change. Any changes to the estimates or timing of executing the 2022 Restructuring Program will be reflected in our future results of operations.
Litigation charges and other includes a $1.2 billion benefit in the first nine months of 2022 from the annulled penalty related to an EC fine that was recorded and paid in 2009, and a charge of $2.2 billion in the first nine months of 2021 related to the VLSI litigation. These were recorded as a Corporate benefit and charge in the "all other" category presented in "Note 2: Operating Segments" within Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements. Refer to "Note 12: Commitments and Contingencies" within Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements for further information on legal proceedings related to the EC fine and the VLSI litigation.Asset impairment charges includes $237 million of goodwill and other impairments related to the shutdown in the first nine months of 2021 of two of our non-strategic businesses, the results of which are included in the “all other” category presented in “Note 2: Operating Segments” within Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements.
