The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act includes critical corporate governance and compensation provisions that will require enhanced proxy statement disclosure, potential changes to composition and operation of compensation committees, advisory votes on executive compensation and golden parachute payments, and the adoption or revision of key policies. Our panel of experts will address the key action items that companies and boards of directors should be focusing on today.

Topics Will Include:

  • Preparing for a “Say on Pay” vote 

  • Shareholder access to the proxy statement

  • Compensation committee and adviser independence  standards

  • New disclosure requirements, including pay vs. performance and internal pay equity

  • Revisiting compensation recoupment, or clawback, policies

  • Employee and director hedging

  • Enhanced SEC enforcement authority

  • New incentives and protections for whistleblowers
