A Free Webinar Featuring:
George H. Bostick, Benefits Tax Counsel, U.S. Treasury Department
Daniel T. Chaudoin, Assistant Director, Enforcement Division, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
Negative publicity and legislative and enforcement initiatives are rapidly changing how business organizations compensate their executives. Corporate boards and executives need to reexamine their executive compensation packages to be in line with the current environment, and to comply with new governance and securities rules. Change will not come easy, in part because existing tax rules can complicate the process.
In this webinar, three panels composed of government officials and executive compensation attorneys and accountants will examine how corporate governance and securities rule changes are leading companies to revise their executive compensation packages, and how tax and other economic hurdles make change difficult.
The webinar will be of interest to executive compensation professional service providers, as well as to directors (particularly those on compensation committees), chief executive officers, general counsel, human resources executives, and finance executives at public companies. The panelists will focus on practical strategies that corporate boards and executives may use to respond to the changes, without completely disrupting the economic expectations of the companies and the affected executives. The Hon. Michael G. Oxley* will provide commentary.
* Mr. Oxley serves as counsel with Baker Hostetler, in addition to serving as senior adviser to the board of directors of Nasdaq OMX Group Inc.
