    Event Synopsis:
    On August 5, 2015, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted the CEO Pay Ratio Disclosure Rule, which requires US public companies to properly disclose the ratio between the compensation of the company's chief executive officer (CEO) and the compensation of its median-paid employees. Mandated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the new rule brings heightened scrutiny of executive compensation policies. In light of this, it is imperative for companies to develop strategies in order to fulfill their responsibilities under the CEO Pay Ratio Disclosure Rule and handle the potential impact of this disclosure.
    In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help companies understand the significant elements of the Pay Ratio Disclosure Rule. They will provide an in-depth discussion of its impact on US companies and the best strategies to meet these new disclosure requirements.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    -Highlights of the Pay Ratio Disclosure Rule
    -Potential Impacts on Companies
    -Key Issues to Consider
    -Best Compliance Strategies
