Tailored Executive Compensation Planning
Creating an effective executive compensation package is essential to your company’s success. Executive compensation is needed to attract and retain top-tier executives while also aligning with your company’s strategic business goals. However, the process of assembling these executive compensation models can be complex and, if mishandled, may result in substantial legal and financial consequences. This is why working with experienced Ontario employment lawyers is important to ensure your executive compensation structures align with your business goals and comply with relevant legislation.
The Executive Compensation Landscape
Executive pay is complicated for many companies. There needs to be an incentive that drives the executive to perform at their highest level. At the same time, it must balance the business strategies, the investors’ or shareholders’ rights, and ensure that the final compensation is compliant with existing laws and regulations. Achkar Law offers strategic and practical legal solutions for all matters relating to your executives’ compensation packages. Our range of services includes advising boards of directors and compensation committees, handling disputes and claims tied to employee benefits, and much more.
A comprehensive executive compensation package can include and is not limited to:
- Base salary;
- Bonuses including:
- cash bonuses;
- short-term incentives; and
- long term incentives,
- Stock options;
- Stock ownership or shareholder equity;
- Health benefits;
- Vacation time; and
- Other incentives or perks.

Public Sector Executives
In Canada, the public sector includes federal and provincial government agencies, crown corporations, municipalities, school districts, universities and colleges, hospitals, and public transit authorities. Public sector organizations should seek out tailored legal advice, as certain legislation may apply to your business, such as the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Act, 2014 in Ontario. Our experienced employment lawyers can ensure that executive executive compensation structures comply with relevant legislation, while also aligning with your business needs.
Aligning Executive Compensation Models with Business Objectives
The structure of executive compensation can have a significant impact on your organization. A misalignment between compensation packages, the ambitions of your employees, and overarching company goals can adversely affect morale and productivity. An insufficient executive compensation package may also create challenges for your business to attract and retain top talent. Therefore, it is vital to work with a law firm that has a deep understanding of executive compensation. With Achkar Law, you can structure packages that balance the needs of both your employees and your company.
