Pensions, Employee Share Schemes and Incentives
The recent financial crisis has brought the issue of employee remuneration into sharp focus. In particular the recent changes in the taxation of bonus payments and income has led a greater number of employers to consider implementing alternative remuneration/incentive structures for their employees.
Kings Chambers’ Employment team has substantial experience in advising and representing both employees and employers in respect of their pensions, employee share schemes and incentives issues. The team is well equipped to provide specialist advice and advocacy before tribunals, County and High courts, the EAT and the higher appellate courts. The team has particular experience in respect of pensions issues and their overlap with employment law such as: the interplay between TUPE and pension schemes; the effect of discriminatory provisions on the provision of pension schemes and equalisation; as well as the provision and calculation of pensionable contributions in respect of claims before the employment tribunal.
Members of the team also regularly advise and represent individuals as well as major employers in disputes concerning the construction and operation of employee share schemes as well as other incentive based schemes (including discretionary bonus schemes).
Instructions are accepted on a direct access and direct professional access basis.
