Executive Compensation, Third Edition, enables you to design executive compensation packages that not only comply with the long list of laws governing this area but also pass muster with entities and interest groups as diverse as stock exchanges, shareholder organizations, and accountants.

Author Michael S. Melbinger has structured Executive Compensation to provide the current, basic framework needed to design, draft, and apply executive compensation programs. This is the essential reference for:

  • Executives
  • Board members
  • In-house and outside attorneys
  • Compensation consultants
  • Accountants
  • and other compensation and human resources professionals

This practical resource enables you to analyze the effects, advantages, disadvantages, and potential pitfalls of nearly all of the applicable legal, market, and other factors when designing, drafting, and administering executive compensation programs.

The Third Edition of Executive Compensation has been updated with extensive analysis of how certain developments continue to affect executive compensation, including:

  • The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017
  • The release of SEC rules on several sections of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act
  • The evolution of different forms of compensation and best practices for companies’ compensation committees
  • The increase in litigation over executive and director compensation

Executive Compensation also examines numerous court decisions, including a surge in litigation over the fiduciary duty of boards of directors when setting their own compensation and a revival of lawsuits over “excessive executive compensation.”

Note: Online subscriptions sold online are for three-month periods.
