Item 5.03    Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On August 2, 2016, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (the “Company”) amended and restated the Company’s By-Laws (as so amended and restated, the “By-Laws”) to add proxy access procedures for qualifying stockholders.  Article II, Section 2.05 has been added to the By-Laws to permit a stockholder, or a group of up to 20 stockholders, that owns 3% or more of the Company’s common stock continuously for at least 3 years to nominate and include in the Company’s proxy materials candidates for election as directors of the Company.  Such stockholder(s) or group(s) of stockholders may nominate up to the greater of 2 individuals or 20% of the Board, provided that the stockholder(s) and the nominee(s) satisfy the eligibility, notice and other requirements specified in the By-Laws.  Stockholders may utilize proxy access beginning with the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
In addition, the amendments to the By-Laws include changes to Article II, Section 2.04 (the Company’s advance notice procedures for director nominations) to conform to these new proxy access procedures and certain other technical changes.
The foregoing description of the By-Laws does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the By-Laws, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
