Final Answer :
Explanation :
While ESOPs (Employee Stock Ownership Plans) are relatively common in the U.S., it is not a standard practice for them to automatically include employee representation on corporate boards of directors. The decision to include employees on the board is up to each individual company and is not a direct consequence of having an ESOP.
