What happens to the share options when an employee leaves the company?

This should be addressed on a case by case basis (mainly by the provisions that govern Good, Bad, and Voluntary leavers within the Option Scheme itself). If there are unvested options remaining after the employee has left the company, then these go back to the company’s Option Pool.
