Format: Hardback

Employee share schemes are a way in which you can give staff a stake in the business. Such schemes may require an employee to work at a firm for a particular length of time in order to qualify for such a benefit and this should encourage loyalty, stop valued employees leaving and may be viewed as a positive incentive to join a firm.

This new work will take a unique approach to explaining the various employee share schemes, how they work, the benefits of having such a scheme and the potential pitfalls. Each chapter will have a brief introduction to the subject and will then provide an in-depth examination of the key issues in a question and answer format.

The author is an acknowledged specialist in the field of employee share schemes and has specialised in this field for more than 20 years. He advises a diverse range of quoted and private companies on all aspects of employee incentives and has been Chairman of the Share Plan Lawyers Group since he founded the group in 1988. Since March 1999 he has been a member of the Advisory Group set up by the UK Government to work with the Inland Revenue on the development of employee share schemes.
