From the Paper:

"Accordingly, in normal cases, equal distributions of accrual of compensation occur annually. However, in some cases it may be deemed appropriate for employers to plan to start the benefit packages slower, if certain criteria are met, and the employee is inexperienced. However, once a certain level of experience is attained, the compensation package should contain the disproportionate balance of the early years. Whatever the case may be the GAAP principles utilized to fulfill the financial reporting cycle should provide the most accurate and up-to-date information. The accounting and reports should reflect the actual contract between the employer and employee, and reflect any deviation from equal accrual of compensation that may be taking place."
