Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

Technically only an appointed director should be allowed to vote at board meetings.

If however the employee is being invited to board meetings and being given voting rights, they could be deemed a defacto director, effectively someone that is acting as a director but is not actually appointed.

Can you provide me with any further information?

Kind regards
