Can anyone help please? My son has a Skype interview tomorrow for his potential first contract after leaving university. The company has asked if he is willing to take some of his salary in Company Equity. Neither of us have come across this before, but his friends are telling him that it might be a bit dodgy. If he was successful, he would only be given a 3 month contract anyway, so this practice seems like a bit of a rip off. Can anyone explain whether this is normal practice for employees, please? Thank you!
