hedging of variable pay


Senior Member
Chinese - Mandarin

The following sentence is from a test for employees on the code of conduct of a bank. This is all I know about the context as I don't know any text of the code.

It is also important that Employees cooperate fully with appropriately authorized external and internal investigations, and refrain from hedging of variable pay.

What does hedge mean here and what's the point of hedging variable pay?

Could it mean setting a minimum amount of variable pay?

Thank you in advance.
