    Hope someone can help.

    I am process starting new ltd company and looking to employ someone that can lead the company with the right qualifcations and experience. The employee will be a director with no shares. Myself and others will be shareholders and myself with majority share. Could the employee while being a director albeit with no shares potentially hijack the company. how can i take steps to protect it?

    Well they would run the company day to day. Not sure what you mean by hijack - they cannot sell the company. They do however make financial decisions.

    The thing you might be looking for would be a Directors Service Agreement which would an extension of their employment contract. Have a solicitor (or good HR consultant) pull one together for you.
