About This Meeting

Providing the right executive compensation is a tricky issue for any company, but it can be especially challenging for an ESOP company. Fiduciary rules require the ESOP trustee to make sure that executive pay is reasonable. S ESOP corporation rules require special care be paid to the form in which executives receive equity compensation and how much they get. Corporate philosophies about compensation may emphasize a flatter pay and rewards scale than in similar conventional companies. These and other issues make this Webinar especially timely. Learn from the experts what works, what doesn't, what other people do, and what the laws require.
