Nortel to ask court to approve controversial US$23M bonus plan for executives

Lawyers for Nortel Networks Corp. are to appear in court on Friday to ask for approval of a controversial US$23-million bonus plan for its top executives that the company says is needed to boost falling morale at the company.

Earlier this month, courts in Canada and the United States gave the green light to US$22 million in payments to about 900 key engineers and other professionals at the telecommunications equipment giant, about five per cent of its workforce.

A Nortel spokesman said… “Losing key staff members often affects a company’s ability to operate efficiently and hinders product development.”

So it’s now universal, the more you fail, the more you’re paid– if you’re an executive whether it’s CBC or Nortel.
