Employee Benefits 344-W OL: Compensation Law: Tax
This course will explore how businesses pay compensation to individuals in exchange for services, especially in relation to the following legal issues: (1) how the federal Internal Revenue Code affects the taxation of that compensation to both the individuals and to the business; (2) how publicly traded companies must disclose compensation packages (especially to executives) to their shareholders; (3) how businesses must comply with minimum wage and other labor laws; and (4) how businesses can be liable for discriminatory compensation policies and actions. In addition, as the market for independent legal counsel to compensation committees has exploded in the past few years, we will explore the best legal practices for sound corporate governance resulting from the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002.
