The chapters of the book are: 1.) Key legal and policy issues relevant to ESOPs. 2.) The current incidence and forms of ESOPs in Australia. 3.) The corporate law framework. 4.) The taxation law framework. 5.) Why do employers implement ESOPs and why do employees participate in them? 6.) International comparisons. 7.) Conclusion and recommendations for reform.
