Remuneration Committee

International Rugby League's Remuneration Committee serves as an advisory to the IRL Board. 

The group's purpose and key areas of activity are:

The objective of such policy shall be to ensure that members of the executive management of the company are provided with appropriate incentives to encourage enhanced performance and are, in a fair and responsible manner, rewarded for their individual contributions to the success of the company.
  • Review the on-going appropriateness and relevance of the remuneration policy.
  • Approve the design of, and determine targets for, any performance related pay schemes operated by the company and approve the total annual payments made under such schemes.
  • Determine the policy for, and the scope of any appropriate pension arrangements.
  • Ensure that contractual terms on termination, and any payments made, are fair to the individual and the company, that failure is not rewarded and that the duty to mitigate loss is fully recognised.
