Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance highlights key insights from CAP’s memorandum on executive pay actions taken in response to COVID-19. The piece, written by partner Melissa Burek, partner Eric Hosken, principal Bonnie Schindler and senior analyst Whitney Cook, examines, among other things, the prevalence and type of incentive changes in companies with fiscal year ends near September 30.
