Updates to Dodd-Frank implementation schedule

News Brief

By Cydney Posner

For those following the play by play at the SEC on implementation of Dodd-Frank, the SEC's just-posted revised timetable delays adoption of rules regarding clawbacks and disclosure of pay for performance, pay ratios and hedging by employees and directors until the January – June 2012 timeframe. The SEC still contemplates proposing those rules in the August – December 2011 period, along with adoption of previously proposed rules related to listing standards regarding compensation committee independence and factors affecting compensation adviser independence,  disclosure rules regarding compensation consultant conflicts, and the specialized disclosure rules related to "conflict minerals," mine safety information and resource extraction. http://www.sec.gov/spotlight/dodd-frank/dfactivity-upcoming.shtml#07-12-12
