Employee Shareholder Contracts

  • 2 ratings, 71 users enrolled

Course Overview

In its simplest terms, employment shareholder status requires an employment shareholder to forfeit certain employment rights in exchange for shares in the business which they work for.

This new status has polarised opinion; while some believe it is little more than a convenient tax loop-hole, others believe it needlessly encourages employees to forfeit some of their basic employment rights. Despite this criticism, the employment shareholder looks set to become a firmly entrenched status.

During this course, experienced employment law practitioner and lecturer Rachael Williams will provide viewers with an overview of what an employee shareholder contract is and will discuss how the contracts will work in practice. In addition, Rachael will also offer useful hints and tips which practitioners can use when advising clients on this issue.
