Former Slovak Radio boss authorized "golden parachutes"

JUST before the former director of Slovak Radio (SRo) left office, he signed new employment contracts for at least 10 to 12 senior managers, the daily SME reported.

These contracts were dubbed "golden parachutes", in which senior managers were made eligible for almost one year’s pay if sacked from their jobs. This would equate to at least half-a-million crowns per manager. It is likely that most of these senior managers will lose their jobs when a new Sro director is elected.

Rezník confirmed the existence of these contracts by commenting that he considers them to be in order. The company's lawyer is currently examining them to determine if they are in line with SRo’s collective contract.
