"... addresses the purposes, duties and legal responsibilities of compensation committees of the boards of directors of public companies. It sets out the legal obligations and standards by which these committees' actions will be judged and also suggests rules and guidelines for operation. In addition, the protection given to decisions made by such committees under the business judgment rule is given significant attention. Specific areas of law where a compensation committee is necessary, the requirements that committees must satisfy in reporting their decisions to shareholders and what additional benefits should be payable upon a change of control are included in the portfolio's scope."
