The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted the final pay ratio disclosure rules last August 2015. The rules implement the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act that necessitates U.S. public companies’ to disclosure of the ratio of their CEO's compensation to that of their median employee. The final rules are aligned with the SEC's original proposal dating back to 2013 and the recent amendments are intended to help eradicate future risks and compliance costs.
In a two-hour live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the fundamentals as well as recent developments of the SEC’s Final Pay Ratio Rules. Speakers will provide their expert thoughts and opinions on how to best comply with the requirements of the final rules.
Key topics include:
SEC’s Final Pay Ratio Rules
Disclosure Required by Section 953(b) of Dodd-Frank
Purpose of the Pay Ratio Disclosure
Disclosure of the Pay Ratio
Scope and Limitation
