The Committee is empowered to retain compensation consultants having special
competence to assist the Committee in evaluating executive officer and employee
compensation. The Committee has the sole authority to retain and terminate such
consultants and to review and approve such consultants’ fees and other retention terms.
The Committee also has the authority to obtain advice and assistance from internal
advisors or other external advisors as it deems appropriate to assist the Committee in
fulfilling its responsibilities. The Committee has the authority to request that any officer
or employee of the Company or the Company’s outside counsel attend a meeting of the

The Committee shall, among other things:

their base salaries, annual incentives, deferred compensation, equity-based

compensatory arrangements) for all the Company’s Section 16(b) officers
and such other senior executives identified by the Committee after
consultation with the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Executive
Vice President, Human Resources and Administration, and to the extent
that this group numbers less than 20 people, the next highest paid
executive(s) (excluding “talent”), who earn more than $5 million in total
compensation in descending order until the group numbers 20 people. The
executive officers and other employees whose compensation packages are
subject to approval by the Committee are hereinafter referred to as the
“Specified Employees”. The determination of whether any person is
among the 20 most highly-compensated employees of the Company will
be made at the beginning of each calendar year based on the person’s
annual cash compensation at that time (assuming for this purpose that the
person’s actual cash bonus would be equal to the person’s target bonus).
The Committee shall make all determinations and take any actions that are
reasonably appropriate or necessary in the course of establishing the
compensation of the Specified Employees.
2. Approve all equity and equity-based compensation for the Specified
Employees and for all other employees of the Company except to the
extent that the Committee has authorized specified members of
management to approve equity compensation (including stock options and

Executive Officer in light of these goals and objectives and report the
results of the evaluations to the non-management directors. The
Committee shall set the compensation levels of the Chairman and the
Chief Executive Officer taking into account the evaluations. In
determining the long-term incentive component of the Chairman’s and the
Chief Executive Officer’s compensation, the Committee shall consider,
without limitation, the Company’s financial performance, relative
shareholder return, the value of incentive awards to executives in similar
positions at comparable companies, and the awards given to the Chairman
and the Chief Executive Officer in past years. The Committee will report
to the Board on this process.
4. Review the evaluation of the performance of other executive officers by
the Chairman and/or the Chief Executive Officer, as appropriate.
5. Review periodically and make recommendations to the Board regarding
the Company’s incentive compensation plans applicable to the Company’s
executive officers and other senior executives including, but not limited to,
the bonus plan for executives subject to Section 162(m) (the “Section
162(m) Plan”) and the equity-based plans (collectively, the “Plans”), the
appropriateness of the allocation of benefits under the Plans and the extent
to which such Plans are meeting their intended objectives and, where
appropriate, recommend that the Board modify any Plan that yields
payments and benefits that are not reasonably related to employee
6. Oversee the administration of the Plans in accordance with their terms,
construe all terms and provisions, conditions and limitations of such Plansand make factual determinations required for the administration of such
7. Determine which executive officers shall participate in the Section 162(m)

9. Review reports from the CBS Retirement and Investments Committees on
developments relating to the design of the Company’s ERISA-governed
employee benefit plans from time to time, or whenever it shall be called
upon to do so.

perform such other functions as may be necessary or appropriate for the performance of
its oversight function. The Committee has the power to delegate its authority and duties
to subcommittees or individuals as it deems appropriate and in accordance with
applicable laws and regulations. In discharging its oversight role, the Committee shall
have full access to the Company’s senior management and employees and all Company

qualifications provided in this Charter shall not invalidate any determination or action
taken by the Committee
