However, since company executives have specific duties and responsibilities, both in general and under certain laws, it is important that they are covered by a specific agreement known as a directors` service agreement. In addition to the basics you would expect in an employment contract, a manager`s service agreement is more detailed and extensive due to his or her role as a specialist and dependent commitments. If, at the same time, things go wrong and the director is taken out of the business by the other counterparties, the agreement may include a termination payment to ensure that the directors are properly compensated. Such an agreement can serve both the company and the directors, so that everyone benefits from having one. Outside investors would like to see the director`s service agreement as part of due diligence. The agreement would serve as an example of the company`s good organization and show how measures have been taken to ensure that the company is prepared to deal with emergency situations. A director`s Service Agreement is a contract between the director and your company, like any other contract.

As a general rule, a director`s service contract contains the following provisions, each of which plays an important role in supporting the relationship between the director and the company: for example, when a director`s employment relationship is terminated without an agreement to the contrary, his participation is generally not affected.
The director may then be able to disrupt the transaction by choosing to veto shareholder decisions or fail to meet a director`s legal obligations. When a director is removed from office, his or her employment may also continue.
