Members of our Employment and Benefits and Tax Practices held a virtual discussion on executive remuneration.

The discussion focused on:

  • Share plans and remuneration trends, including ESOPs, executive share plans and incentives, performance conditions and minimum shareholding requirements.
  • Shareholder activism broadly, and in particular, Malus and Clawback and other methods of consequence management.
  • The legal issues regarding malus and clawback.
  • Legal risks associated with the application of discretion.
  • The pay gap, living wage and optimising the financial wellness of workers using innovative benefits, including existing tax benefits for workers (housing, education).
