From our experience of advising employees on redundancies, the issue of stock or share transfers can be complex. If employees who are told they are at risk of redundancy have any stock or share options in the company employing them, they should seek immediate legal advice about the vesting of these shares, before deciding on whether to leave their employer.

As employment law solicitors, we have seen cases where if an employee were to resign, there is a risk that their shares would not vest and he or she would not get paid – thereby losing the right to the shares or stock options. In some cases, shares are not due to vest until after leaving the company. Where this is so, it may be possible to reach some form of agreement with the employer company by negotiation.
