Incentivising Employees: The theory, policy and practice of employee share ownership plans in Australia
by Ingrid Landau, Ann O’Connell and Ian Ramsay
Employee share ownership has the potential to generate a culture of enterprise and innovation, and build national wealth and savings. This book is the culmination of a multi-year research project funded by the Australian Research Council and represents the first detailed discussion of the theory, policy and practice of employee share ownership plans (ESOPs) in Australia. The topics examined in the book are key legal and policy issues relevant to ESOPs, the current incidence and forms of ESOPs in Australia, the corporate law and taxation law frameworks, why employers implement ESOPs and why employees participate in them, international comparisons, and recommendations for reform.
The book will be launched on Monday, 20 May 2013 in Melbourne by Minister Bill Shorten.
