The Director's Handbook is a new, practical guide for board directors and other senior decision-makers, providing authoritative information and advice. Readable and accessible, it explains the duties, responsibilities and liabilities of directors and covers the issues they face in their daily working lives - from pay and pensions to dealings and disclosure requirements. The Director's Handbook is written by a specially commissioned team of experts and illustrated with real-life examples and case studies of companies of varying size and sector. Much of the subject matter is also of relevance to company secretaries, professional advisers and those running public sector or voluntary organisations. The Director's Handbook is published by the Institute of Directors (IoD) in association with law firm Pinsent Masons. It is not a legal text book; it is a practical resource for those who run companies and need to understand the ever-changing legal and regulatory environment in which they operate. All companies- large or small, public or private -and many other organisations too, will find it useful. Areas covered include The law's treatment of companies and the legal obligations of directors • The UK blueprint for best boardroom practice - the Combined Code on Corporate Governance • Directors' service contracts, remunerations, pensions and dealings • How directors must act in the face of insolvency or financial difficulty • New obligations imposed on listed companies and their directors by the Financial Services Authority.
