Exploring the relationship between directors and employment law
During this 30-minute session, barrister and lecturer Alastair Hodge will examine the interrelationship between company directors and modern-day employment law.
This session has been designed to provide viewers with an overview of some of the areas which might crop up in practise and offers a starting point should further research be required.
Alastair will tackle the tricky question of whether of not a director is employed and, if they are, will go on to explore some of the terms which may be contained within a director’s service contract.
Consideration will be given to both the employment law related duties governed by a director’s contract of employment and the additional statutory duties that they owe to the company for whom they are engaged.
Alastair will also look at the circumstances in which a director’s term of office comes to an end and how this interrelated with their status as an employee of the company. Finally, the implications for directors under TUPE will be discussed.
