What is employment law in relation to directors?
Director related employment law refers to the legal obligations and rights of company directors in relation to their employment. This includes issues such as directors’ duties, remuneration, and termination.
Your senior executives and directors make a significant contribution to your business and if one (or several) of them should leave, it will have a correspondingly significant impact. Of course you’ll hope they will part on good terms, but if there is a dispute involved then you will need to be prepared, by having contracts, service agreements and covenants in place to protect the business interests.
The departure of a senior executive can be particularly complex because, as well as being an employee, they may also be a shareholder and possibly a director. This adds extra complications because you will be dealing with shareholder agreements and company laws, as well as employment laws.
Your expert legal support
Acting incorrectly could result in the senior executive taking you to court or an employment tribunal, and the penalties could be significant. To avoid this risk, it’s essential that you have specialist legal advice from experienced employment and director dispute solicitors.
