US Steel sacks four workers

Another four employees at US Steel Košice have been fired for conflict of interest and corruption, following the nine who were dismissed for the same reasons in August following the steel maker's announcement of a strict anti-corruption policy.

Slovak press reported that some of the employees had been caught illegally copying computer software, while one had not declared the fact that he sat on the supervisory board of another firm.

Head of the east Slovak steel giant, John Goodish, announced in August that his firm had found bribery and corruption among suppliers and its own employees. US Steel Košice introduced a strict code of ethics at the firm in line with state labour regulations.
