Skadden’s Executive Compensation and Benefits Group is pleased to provide you with its 2021 Compensation Committee Handbook. This edition reflects updates in applicable law and practices, including compensation design considerations in response to COVID-19 and other uncertainties; recent tax law changes and guidance; the continuing and increasing focus on gender pay gap and environmental, social and governance considerations; and the evolving role of compensation committees in light of these and other developments. Like the previous editions, the Handbook is intended to help compensation committee members understand and comply with the duties imposed upon them. We believe it also will be a useful resource for those who advise compensation committees.
