SEC seeks greater transparency on compensation
In January, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) presented the proposal that companies reveal their total compensation packages. Currently under a 90-day comment period, the proposal, if implemented, will compel companies to add a special section titled "Compensation Discussion and Analysis" in all public filings. This section will include a three-year compensation history of its CEO, CFO, and the next three highest-paid executives. This comes in the wake of many companies violating the existing rules on compensation disclosure, which were issued in 1992. Most of them mention only salaries in their public filings, which are a relatively small part of the overall compensation, and hide major details like retirement benefits and stock awards.
