Losing your share options?

Seeking a dignified exit strategy?

As an employed executive director, you have the same employment rights as any other employee. If you have been asked to leave and you consider the reason given to be unfair, you will need good legal advice as you may be entitled to claim unfair dismissal. You could also claim for wrongful dismissal or breach of contract if your company has not given you proper notice under your service agreement.

If you think you have been asked to leave because you have a protected characteristic, you could claim for discrimination.

Myers & Co have specialist employment law solicitors who understand how much is at stake and will advise you of your rights and options. Our experienced lawyers can represent you in negotiations with your employer and at an employment tribunal.

If you have agreed to resign, and you have been asked to sign a settlement (formerly compromise) agreement, we can make sure that the terms are fair and you receive the settlement figure you deserve.

We can help you negotiate over your share options, restrictive covenants in your contract, safeguard your future employment prospects and agree a good reference with your employer.

Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, our specialist employment solicitors offer independent legal advice and representation on all types of employment law problems. Call us on 01782 577000.
