Executive Remuneration Bill proposed changes to the Corporations Act

4 March 2011

The Corporations Amendment (Improving Accountability on Director and Executive Remuneration) Bill 2011 (Bill) was introduced into the Federal Parliament on 22 February 2011.

Company directors, company secretaries, general counsel and remuneration professionals should therefore make themselves aware of the changes proposed in the Bill.
