Executive Pay and Loyalty: From Design to Enforcement
LL.M Course 821 (cross-listed) | 2 credit hours
This course examines corporate "loyalty" from a distinctly
practical perspective -- from the basic fiduciary requirements (under
federal and state law) that apply to corporate officers and directors,
to possible business protections (such as non-competition agreements),
to the enforcement of loyalty covenants (through compensation plans,
benefit forfeitures, and clawbacks). Students will learn the history of
current standards, and discuss the global issues of the day - including
legislative and regulatory initiatives. The course will feature guest
speakers who will share insights into in-house corporate issues,
governmental initiatives, and applicable employment law issues.
