Dodd Frank Changes

In Blog By Chey Barnes / October 25, 2016

There were some recent additions to the Dodd Frank rules that specify that the ratio of the median employee annual total compensation to the CEO annual total compensation must be disclosed. This is a double edged sword; investors would like to know how much the CEO is making in comparison to the average employee.
