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.
