Directors employment rights

How can you preserve your employment rights as a director and employee

In recent weeks we have been advising several directors (who also happen to be shareholders) of companies where there has been some sort of fall out with fellow directors (and shareholders) leading to that person being dismissed from their role as director and in turn their employment. In this episode 229 of the podcast I bring you a run down of the employment rights that apply to directors who are employees of the business.

I also cover my tips on avoiding disputes and how to resolve them quickly in the event of a dispute arising.

In this episode of the podcast we cover:

  • When a director is also an employee.
  • The rights of directors who are also employees.
  • Why you need to have an employment contract and clear terms in place at the outset.
  • The importance of company documentation.
  • Why you need to have targets and goals for directors that are measurable.
  • Why you should caution against dismissing a director from their employment merely because they are no longer able to be a director.
