Changes in CEO Pay Reporting

by Luke Landes

The Securities and Exchange Commission is taking a look at CEO compensation again, and this time they’ve proposing new disclosure rules. Companies would be required to fully disclose all forms of compensation in a way that is understandable. I think it’s safe to say that corporations will always find a way to bend the rules ...
