SEC Wants Companies To Disclose CEO-Worker Pay Ratio
Originally published on Thu July 3, 2014 10:27 am
The Securities and Exchange Commission has proposed a rule that would require publicly traded companies to disclose the difference in pay between the company’s CEO and its employees.
The rule is applauded by unions and labor advocacy groups that think the transparency would help investors “identify top heavy compensation models,” according to Reuters. However, business groups oppose the measure.
