Employment and employee incentives

Turbulent economic times require companies to be agile and flexible in their staffing to remain competitive. Complex polices, frequent legislative changes and global operations make managing employee relations and compliance with employment law challenging for businesses. Deloitte Legal provides businesses with the advice they need to make informed decisions, effectively recruit, motivate and retain employees through well-designed employee incentive plans, comply with a multitude of regulatory and procedural requirements and minimise their exposure as the result of a conflict.

Employment law

Companies are seeking guidance on a range of day-to-day employee management policies, procedures and protocols to help their businesses operate smoothly. This task has become increasingly complex in today’s globalised environment in which employees can be located all over the world. Businesses must comply with differing legislative and regulatory requirements, cultural norms and expectations. Deloitte Legal assists companies in the following areas:

  • Workforce management and transformation, including the legal aspects of restructuring, changing terms and conditions of employment, transfers and redundancy
  • Employment contracts and engagement letters
  • Employee performance including disciplinary action, grievances and management of absence
  • Business protections, including restrictive covenants
  • Terminations
  • Employee discrimination and harassment issues
  • Internal procedural manuals, employee policies and other codes of conduct
  • Compliance issues, including national minimum wage, holiday pay and statutory leave

Deloitte Legal helps companies to manage employee risk efficiently and to proactively establish and adhere to prudent HR policies. Our employment lawyers have strong experience both in the UK and throughout the world. Deloitte’s global reach stands apart. Deloitte Legal lawyers team with Deloitte business professionals in tax and human capital consulting to deliver well-rounded guidance to companies.

Employee incentives

The use of appropriately designed incentive plans which deliver cash or shares can be an effective tool to recruit, motivate and retain employees. Incentives range from all employee plans in companies with a global workforce, through arrangements for executives in public companies to bespoke designs for private companies with unique circumstances.

Deloitte provides a complete service from design through to implementation of a share plan. Our advice includes legal, regulatory, tax and accounting considerations in the UK and globally as well as reviews of the impact of corporate transactions on incentive arrangements.
