Executive compensation

Shareholders have a say in how corporate executives are paid. Most companies are required to get shareholder approval of stock-based compensation. Shareholders at many companies have also filed resolutions seeking greater disclosure of what top executives are paid, stronger provisions for shareholder oversight of compensation, and even explicit limits on pay packages.
