Eastman Kodak Co. has asked permission to give out $13.5 million to its employees as bonuses while it is currently under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in order to entice skilled employees to stay with the company.
According to the photography company, it is specifically targeting employees with valuable knowledge and skills that will help the company emerge from bankruptcy. At least 119 middle managers would share $8.5 million in bonuses.
The court filing states that many of the employees at Kodak have seen significant pay cuts while their work loads have increased. To keep their employees from taking attractive offers from competitors, Kodak wants to give out bonuses roughly 35 to 50 percent of the employees’ base salaries.
