Earlier in the week, Monster Worldwide, Inc., said it had launched an internal audit of all of its stock-option grants. The company said a committee of independent directors of the company is conducting the review, and that the committee has retained independent outside legal counsel to assist.

In recent weeks, several companies have disclosed internal or federal inquiries of their stock option practices. Specifically, the inquiries are examining whether the dates of stock-option grants were changed to make them more lucrative to recipients.

On June 9, Broadcom Corporation said the Securities and Exchange Commission notified the company that the agency will be sending an informal request for information on the company's stock-option practices.

The company said it launched an internal review of stock options in mid-May.
