Genting Singapore says chairman Lim Kok Thay took more than 50% pay cut in FY20, not big increment

KUALA LUMPUR (March 27): Genting Singapore Ltd (GENS) yesterday clarified its executive chairman Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay received less than S$5 million (RM15. 4 million) — excluding accruals — as his remuneration for the financial year ended Dec 31, 2020 (FY20).

The amount was more than a 50% reduction over the previous year, the casino operator stressed that Lim’s salary did not double as the media reported earlier.

“This reduction in remuneration was a result of the group’s business being badly affected by Covid-19 which resulted in the cancellation of performance shares granted in 2020 and no performance bonus being paid in respect of FY20,” said GENS. The statement is a response to queries raised by the Singapore Exchange Regulation (SGX RegCo) with relation to the company’s FY20 annual report.

GENS, in which Genting Bhd owns a 52.66% stake, highlighted that Lim continues to take up to 30% pay cut starting in March 2020.

In the company’s FY20 Annual Report, GENS disclosed that Lim’s total remuneration was in the range of S$21.25 million to S$21.5 million, compared with his total remuneration in the range of S$9.

5 million to S$9.75 million disclosed in FY19.

GENS’ net profit fell to S$69.2 million in FY20, nearly 90% lower against S$688.6 million in FY19.

In the same filing to SGX yesterday, GENS said that a “significant proportion” of Lim’s remuneration relates to a contingent bonus of S$35 million. According to the filing, the contingent bonus is conditional upon the company being successful in its bid for a Japan integrated resort (IR), of which 50% of the bonus is due upon the company being selected by the local government as an IR operator for the city, while the balance 50% is due upon certification of the IR area by the Japan national government.

GENS also noted that none of the S$35 million bonus has been paid out to the chairman as the “conditions have not been met”, thus, the company said the accrued relevant portion of this Japan Project Incentive Award “should be viewed separately”, concerning the amount of remuneration received by the chairman for FY20.

Unaudited $1.

7 billion 2020 loss as Genting HK restructuring wages on

At the same date, total borrowings amounted to $3.38bn, capital commitment was $1.16bn and cash and cash equivalents (excluding bank overdrafts) were $242.8m.

Hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic which suspended most ship operations and temporarily shuttered its shipyards, Genting HK has been engaged in restructuring efforts since last August.

The group obtained a debt holiday for 2020 borrowings that amounted to $151.4m originally due and payable by the end of 2020. Without further extension, these borrowings are to be paid from April.

Restructuring negotiations progressing

At year’s end, Genting HK was in default for principal on borrowings totaling $3.39bn. This week, the group received a letter from major creditors for $1.74bn of that, acknowledging significant progress in the restructuring negotiations and that credit approval processes were under way to be able to enter into binding terms.

The creditors confirmed their intention to stand still from exercising any enforcement or other rights available to them under the default until the restructuring’s completion or June 30, whichever is earlier.

Ad hoc group

An ad hoc group of these major creditors and Genting HK advisors continues to work on a restructuring plan. This includes obtaining an extended debt holiday for borrowings up to two years after the restructuring effective date in addition to the existing approved debt holiday and obtaining waivers from compliance with bank covenants through this period.

The plan also seeks approval for interest step down for some borrowings, and to convert the company’s existing letter of credit facility into a term loan to finance working capital requirements. As well, the plan would formalize the forbearance from enforcement currently observed by creditors in relation to events of default.

Other creditors

In other actions, Genting HK applied for further debt holiday and waivers for past defaults for the Genting Dream sale and leaseback arrangement and borrowings from other financial creditors not represented in the ad hoc group, collectively amounting to $916. 8m. The debt holiday for Genting Dream was extended to October this year, and Genting HK sees ‘reasonable’ prospects for obtaining a further delay, along with further debt holidays from other creditors not represented in the ad hoc group when the overall restructuring is completed.

Seeking fresh equity

Genting HK said it is in the process of securing a fresh equity injection of approximately $50m to $100m from an existing business partner or other investors.

Pursuing another bridge loan from Germany

Further, the company is seeking a medium-term bridge loan of up to €300m from Germany’s Economic Stabilization Fund (WSF), a COVID-19 support program. Genting HK already received a short-term WSF bridge loan of €193m in October, which enabled MV Werften to reopen.

The additional medium-term loan would finance the shipyard operations and the completion of Global Dream. Upon the completion of that ship, now scheduled for mid-2022, further liquidity will be released from the existing post-delivery financing to repay the WSF loan.

The approval of the WSF medium-term bridge loan is conditional on the outcome of the ad hoc group restructuring solution.

Crystal Endeavor financing

Upon completion of Crystal Endeavor, Genting HK expects to obtain additional secured financing of up to €280m from other lenders to repay the WSF short-term bridge loan. Crystal Endeavor is targeted to be completed by May.

Resumption of cruise operations

The resumption of cruise operations in Taiwan with Explorer Dream since July last year, followed by World Dream in Singapore since November, have made positive contributions that have reduced Dream Cruises’ burn rate and improved cash flows. Genting Dream is targeted to start cruising in July.

Crystal Cruises also expects to resume cruising in the third quarter.

After a gradual restart as travel restrictions are lifted and vaccination plans are widely carried out by the authorities, Genting HK expects cruise operations will normalize and achieve pre-pandemic level in 2022.

Deferred capital commitments

Genting HK also has certain contractual financial obligations and various capital expenditures to settle, most related to newbuilds. Earlier, the group deferred the construction of Global 2 and suspended the construction of Endeavor 2 and the Universal class ships.

Management is currently finalizing the timing of the shipbuilding plans, and the viability of projects are subject to the WSF financial support.

Based on discussions with suppliers and contractors, Genting HK expects it will be able to defer the capital commitments of Global 2, and the suppliers and contractors have not taken actions to enforce the fulfilment of commitments by the shipyards.

The company said it will revisit its plan when the cruise industry has fully recovered from the COVID-19 outbreak. Meanwhile, Genting HK is ‘confident’ the capital commitments due and payable within the next 12 months will be substantially reduced.

Selling non-core assets

Should measures not work out, Genting HK is prepared to monetize some non-core assets which will provide additional liquidity. The company disposed of its investment in Macau in December for a consideration of $96.2m.

Cash flow projection

All told, Genting HK’s directors believe there is a ‘reasonable’ prospect the group will have sufficient cash flows to meet operating requirements, investing activities and financial obligations for at least 12 months, though cautioning this depends on the successful outcomes of various initiatives.

Top 10 Highest Paid CEOs in SGX-Listed Companies (2020)

I started collating the salaries of CEOs of SGX-listed companies back in 2019 and I thought it’s a good idea to make it an annual tradition. But it is extremely tedious to do so because I have to analyse every Singapore listed companies’ annual report to get the exact figures. I hope I’ll have the stamina to do it in the coming years (please motivate me!).

2020 was a notable year because of the Covid pandemic and it would be interesting to see if the overall CEO remuneration declined that year. I will be discussing this in the later sections.

Here are some things you should know before I share the results:

  • Not all the companies report their financial statements at the end of the year. While most companies’ financial year ended on the 31st of December 2020, others’ financial year ended on another month of that year. Some companies would have suffered the full impact of Covid, while those that released their financial report before the 31st of March 2020 would see less of an impact. Thus, I will only take information from reports issued in 2020.
  • I only took note of the remuneration for the key executive. Hence, keep in mind the data presented here isn’t for the entire board; it is only for one key personnel of the company.
  • Determining the key personnel can be tricky at times. Sometimes a company has both a “CEO” and a “Managing Director”,  while a handful of others don’t have CEOs, only non-executive directors. I used my own judgement to decide who is the leader – I simply picked the one with the highest salary.
  • Determining the exact remuneration can be quite tricky too – it can be broken down into salary, bonuses, stock options, investments, and benefits in kind. I have taken all of these into consideration. Bear in mind that the renumeration in this report isn’t all cash.
  • Some companies do not disclose the salaries of their key executive. Thus, I omitted these companies from my list.
  • Some companies disclose the salaries but do not mention the identity of their key personnel. In these cases, I just made my best guess.

Remunerations for CEO / Key Director of SGX-listed companies in 2020

Of the 674 SGX listed companies I looked into, 104 companies didn’t make it to this list because they either did not publish a report in 2020 or did not disclose the salary details of their key director for me to even make a reasonable guess.

Here are the stats:

  • 2 CEOs or key directors had remunerations of more than $10M.
  • 12 CEOs or key directors had remunerations between $5M and $10M.
  • 116 CEOs or key directors had remunerations between $1M and $5M.
  • 172 CEOs or key directors had remunerations between $500,000 to $999,999.
  • 148 CEOs or key directors had remunerations between $250,000 to $499,999.
  • 120 CEOs or key directors had remunerations of less than $250,000.

Highest paid CEO of SGX listed companies – Tan Yong Nang, CEO of Japfa Tan Yong Nang, CEO of Japfa (photo from Japfa 2020 Annual Report)

You might not have heard of the Tan Yong Nang or even the company, Japfa.

Japfa is an agri-food company that is mainly focused on producing quality meat and dairy products, as well as animal feeds.  It has an integrated network of modern farming, distribution and processing facilities in various parts of Asia.

Tan Yong Nang is the head of Japfa and his $23,319,000 remuneration sounds a lot, considering that the company has a market capitalisation of only $1. 45B. On the other hand, Wilmar has a $27B market capitalisation and yet its CEO, Kuok Khoon Hong, received a total compensation of just $9,345,405 in 2020.

One interesting fact is that 76% of Tan Yong Nang’s $23M compensation is in equities and his salary and cash-based incentive are worth around $5,596,560.

It is worth noting that in 2019, Tan Yong Nang received $6,930,000 in total remuneration without any equity incentive.

10 highest paid CEOs / Key Directors in 2020

Another executive salary worth mentioning is Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, the executive chairman of Genting Singapore.

Genting Singapore’s main business is focused on the development and operation of large-scale integrated resorts, casino operations and investments.  It is also listed on the main board of the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading.

As executive chairman of Genting, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay’s salary ranges between $21,250,000 and $21,500,000. I find this figure overwhelming considering that the company was badly hit by Covid in 2020. Yet his compensation that year was $250,000 higher than what he received in 2019 (from $9,500,000 to $9,750,000).

Anyway, I’m not a Genting shareholder so I shouldn’t be so concerned about this.

Here are the top 10 highest paid CEOs / key directors:

10 lowest paid CEOs / Key Directors in 2020

Next, we look at the bottom. Here’s the table showing CEOs / Key Directors who have received the lowest remunerations in 2020.

RankCEO / Key DirectorCompanyTotal Remuneration
#1Lau Chor Beng, PeterJoyas$0
#2Chang Wei LuMercurius$0

#8Tan Sri Cheng Heng JemParkson Retail$49,000
#9Ong Chor WeiNet Pacific Fin$63,500
#10Teh Chong SengAdventus$77,000

Interestingly, Lau Chor Beng, Peter (Joyas) did not take remuneration in 2019 as well. And Sim Wong Hoo (Creative Technology) has been taking a $1 salary for eons.

Heng Aik Yong’s compensation increased to $38,338 in 2020, from $33,992 in 2019, but he still couldn’t escape being part of this list.

Covid’s impact on executive remunerations

As a final analysis, there wasn’t a big change to the executive remunerations in 2020 despite the pandemic, except for a slight dip in the compensation of those in the higher brackets.

In 2020, there were only two executives with over $10M compensation, as compared to seven in 2019. The CEOs of the banks took a pay cut which contributed to the overall decline in the numbers in this bracket. The key directors in other brackets had similar remuneration in both 2019 and 2020

Meet the 10 Highest Paid CEOs in Malaysia This Year

90,000 The CEO shouldn’t get ten times the employee

The CEO is usually the same employee as the others. The rules should be the same for everyone, which means that his salary should:

1) be not lower than the market and correspond to the corporate hierarchy;

2) be sufficient to maintain a level of comfortable life (there is an individual approach to assessing this indicator), otherwise he will think about an additional source of money, spending his working time not 100%;

3) pay off by the operating indicators of the business and fit into the organization’s development plans, i.e.That is, the company should not have to choose between remuneration of the CEO and investment in its development.

Strange as it may seem, but a fact – today in many companies the system of remuneration of general directors does not always have a direct relationship with the level of labor expended by them, since it is difficult to assess what contribution he made to the company’s success. That is why, within each company, it is advisable to establish the most acceptable system of remuneration and remuneration for top managers, including general directors. It depends on the specifics and scale of the business.

For example, in some organizations it is customary for CEOs to pay only a salary, since additional remuneration (in the opinion of management) can only motivate ordinary employees who are doing routine work every day. In addition to their salary, they can only buy back a portion of the shares. In others, CEOs “sit” on bonuses for the company’s achievement of certain goals: they made a deal, increased sales, etc. As a rule, their remuneration is formed from the company’s net income or total profit.It is important that particular tasks do not run counter to the overall business strategy.

Summing up, I will say: I see no reason to pay the CEO tens, if not hundreds of times more just because he occupies this position.

90,000 Salaries for TOP-managers

In the Ukrainian market, it is not customary to indicate salaries in vacancies for senior management. Only 18% of job advertisements on grc.ua portal were published with an indication of the level of possible earnings.On average, for all specialties on the market, this figure is 30%. Least of all salaries are indicated in Donetsk (12%), most often in Crimea – almost a third of vacancies.

The greatest chances of finding out your future salary are from HR directors (40% of vacancies with salary indication), small business managers (29%) and marketing executives (28%). But insurers, logisticians and managers in the production sphere prefer to report salary information directly at the interview (10-11% of vacancies with an indication of the level of salary).

This fact was confirmed by HR managers during the survey of the opinions of HR managers registered on HeadHunter. According to the data poll , TOP is the category for which the salary is least often indicated, motivating it with politics companies on nondisclosure of information about salaries.

Salaries for TOPs almost always start to indicate from the level of 20-24 thousand UAH. At the same time, a third of vacancies are in the salary range from 23 to 34 thousand.hryvnias, and another quarter of proposals – with a salary of 34-43 thousand hryvnia. The remaining 40% of senior executives have a chance of finding a job with a salary of more than 40 thousand. hrn.

The average level of salaries for directors and managers in the market is 35–40 thousand hryvnyas. Average values ​​significantly depend on several factors: the area in which the manager works, work experience and skills, company level and other conditions.

Note that the level of material compensation is highly dependent on the experience of the candidate.Candidates with experience of 3-6 years in the field of management. In this category, most of the announced salary offers are in the range of UAH 30-40 thousand, in while for specialists with less work experience, proposals are mainly at the level of UAH 16-20 thousand.

People are not shy about vacancies, so they write: nominee director. Another such position can be called an interim director. We did a detailed analysis of what such work is fraught with. In short, they can go to jail.

What a job

Most employers require the candidate for a director position to have previous leadership experience — usually one to three years.Even in vacancies, they often write that you need to have experience in the very field in which the company specializes. For example, to get a job as a store director, you need sales management skills, a school director – five years of teaching experience, a director of a private clinic – experience in managing medical institutions.

90,000 How to transfer a CEO to another position

Expert consultation

Labor relations with the general director of the company have their own characteristics. What is the right thing to do in a situation when the general director needs to be transferred to another position and not violate the norms of the law? Our expert Oksana Ustyak told about this.

The ConsultantPlus legal reference system will help to avoid mistakes in personnel changes, as well as in hiring and firing employees.

There are two ways to transfer the general director to another position: by transfer or through the procedure of dismissal and further employment. But these two methods carry a lot of contradictions, since the law does not explain some points, does not give a clear algorithm of actions. In this article, we will try to choose the most optimal way to transfer the CEO to another position.

Path one: transfer

The possibility of choosing this method does not contradict the law, although the procedure for transferring the general director is not reflected in detail in the legislation.

If you act from the generally accepted norms of labor law, then the procedure is simple. Here is the translation algorithm.

Application

The Director General must write a statement requesting his release from his post and transfer him to another post.

Meeting of owners

The agenda will be the termination of the current leader and the appointment of a new CEO.

The general director of the company does not have the right to independently decide on his transfer to another position, since he is not an employer for himself. Art. 72 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2001 No. 197-FZ (as revised on June 28, 2021) {ConsultantPlus}.

The documentary registration of the transfer, appointment to another position will be carried out by the already appointed sole executive body.

Conclusion of an additional agreement

An additional agreement is concluded on the transfer of the director to another position, which is signed by one of the persons named in para. 2 p. 1 art. 40 of Law No. 14-FZ. Art. 40 of the Federal Law of 08.02.1998 No. 14-FZ (as amended on 02.07.2021) “On Limited Liability Companies” {ConsultantPlus}.

Issue of order

The order is signed by the new CEO.

By the way, earlier we told whether an employee can demand a transfer to another position.

Way two: dismissal and subsequent recruitment

The procedure for dismissing the general director and hiring him as an employee is regulated by Art. 77, 278 chap. 11 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation.

Ch. 13 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2001 No. 197-FZ (as revised on June 28, 2021) {ConsultantPlus}.

Art. 278 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2001 No. 197-FZ (as amended on June 28, 2021) {ConsultantPlus}.

Ch.11 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2001 No. 197-FZ (as amended on June 28, 2021) {ConsultantPlus}.

Let’s give an algorithm of actions.

Application

The general director draws up a letter of resignation of his own free will in any form, there is no normatively approved form.

The time period within which the general director of the organization must notify the owner of the property (his representative) in writing of his voluntary dismissal, as a rule, no later than one month in advance.This rule on the period of notification is general and does not depend on the term of the employment contract (Article 280 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, Letter of Rostrud dated 06.03.2013 No. PG / 1063-6-1).

Meeting of owners

It is necessary to draw up a decision on the termination of the powers of the head (clause 2, clause 2.1 of article 32, clause 4 of clause 2 of article 33, article 39 of the LLC Law, clause 8 of clause 1 of article 48, clause 3 of article . 69 of the Law on JSC).

In addition, we recommend organizing the transfer of cases when a manager is dismissed. It is advisable to do this, for example, in order to determine the state of affairs in the organization at the time of his dismissal, to identify whether the head has committed any violations of the law.

Dismissal order, payment, entry in the work book

A dismissal order is issued, an entry is made in the work book (if it is maintained) and information in the “Information on labor activity” (part 4 of article 66, article 66.1, part 1 of article 84.1 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, clause 4 Rules for maintaining and storing work books).

Upon dismissal of a manager (general director) of your own free will, settle with him in the same way as with an ordinary employee. In particular, pay him a salary, compensation for unused vacation. Art. 140 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2001 No. 197-FZ (as amended on June 28, 2021) {ConsultantPlus} .

Check if there is a severance pay for a manager who voluntarily resigns from an employment or collective agreement. Art. 178 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2001 No. 197-FZ (as amended on June 28, 2021) {ConsultantPlus} ). If he is entitled to a payment, then when determining its amount, consider the following.

If your manager is one of the persons listed in h.1 tbsp. 349.3 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation (for example, if you have an LLC, which has more than 50% of shares in the ownership of the state), then the total amount of any severance pay, compensation and other payments paid to it in any form cannot exceed its threefold average monthly earnings. Art. 349.3 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2001 No. 197-FZ (as amended on June 28, 2021) {ConsultantPlus} . In the aggregate amount, do not include only salaries, compensation for unused vacations and other payments listed in Part.5 Art. 349.3 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2001 No. 197-FZ (as amended on June 28, 2021) {ConsultantPlus} .

Recruitment for another position

From the date of appointment, the new director may hire the former director for another position in the general manner provided for by the Labor Code of the Russian Federation.

Here you can read about the new rules for keeping work books.

Output

We believe that the transfer of a general director to another should be formalized through dismissal from the current position and admission to a new position.

This is explained by the fact that translation is not prohibited, but when making a translation there will be a number of legal conflicts that need to be resolved, and any decision will not fully comply with the letter of the law.

So, when transferring the general director to another position, the following problems arise.

  1. It is not clear who should sign the amendment to the employment contract with the manager – the new manager (the employer’s representative for the employee (Article 20 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation)) or the founder (the employer’s representative for the manager (Art.40 of the Federal Law of 08.02.1998 No. 14-FZ “On Limited Liability Companies”)), – as well as who must sign the order to transfer the head.
  2. It is also not clear which document will serve as the basis for the translation. It cannot be the decision of the founders, since they are not entitled to resolve issues that are not attributed to their competence. They have the right only to early terminate the powers of the head, and the transfer of employees falls within the competence of the head (Articles 72.1, 20 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation).
  3. A transfer means a change in the employee’s job function, however, when a manager is transferred, it is not just the job function that changes, the payment conditions change, the specifics of the regulation of his labor change, the list of grounds for dismissal changes, his activities are no longer regulated by the constituent documents of the company, etc.

At the same time, transfer to a position through dismissal and recruitment will allow avoiding these problems. At the same time, as already noted, the transfer is not prohibited and the possibility of its execution depends on the fact that the founders have the right to make a decision on such a transfer.

However, even in this case, the issue of signing documents remains unregulated by law.

Question

What entry should be made in the work record book of the general director in the event that by decision of the general meeting it is decided to transfer him to another position?

Answer

We believe that the transfer of a general director to another should be formalized through dismissal from the current position and admission to a new position.

This is explained by the fact that translation is not prohibited, but when making a translation there will be a number of legal conflicts that need to be resolved, and any decision will not fully comply with the letter of the law. Transfer to a position through dismissal and recruitment will avoid these problems.

At the same time, as already noted, the transfer is not prohibited, and the possibility of its execution depends on the fact that the founders have the right to make a decision on such a transfer.

However, even in this case, the issue of signing documents remains unregulated by law.

If the transfer path is nevertheless chosen, then we believe that the entry in the work book should be done in the following order.

Based on the order, a specially authorized person makes an entry on the transfer in the employee’s work book. Art. 66 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation of 12/30/2001 No. 197-FZ (revised on 06/28/2021) {ConsultantPlus}, Order of the Ministry of Labor of Russia of 05/19/2021 No. 320n “On the approval of the form, procedure for maintaining and storing work books” {ConsultantPlus}.

At the same time, we note that the Instruction approved by the Order of the Ministry of Labor of Russia dated 05.19.2021 No. 320n “On approval of the form, procedure for maintaining and storing work books” {ConsultantPlus}, it is provided that in column 3 of the section “Information on work” the name of the position (work), specialty, profession with an indication of qualifications are made, as a rule, in accordance with the staffing table of the organization.

According to the same paragraph of the instructions, changes and additions made in accordance with the established procedure to the staffing table of the organization are brought to the attention of employees, after which appropriate changes and additions are made to their work books on the basis of an order (instruction) or other decision of the employer.

Accordingly, in the case under consideration, the employer should first, on the basis of the order, make changes to the staffing table, according to which the employer will have a vacant position for the transfer of the general director, and then, on the basis of the order (order) for the transfer, make an entry in the work book about transfer to given position.

When making an entry on a permanent transfer, in column 1 of the section “Information about work”, the ordinal number of the entry is put, in column 2 the date of transfer is indicated, in column 3 an entry is made on the transfer indicating the name of the new position (in accordance staffing table), and column 4 indicates the date and number of the order (instruction) on the transfer.The entry in column 3 may be as follows: “Transferred to the position _______________ (position name)”.

90,000 And you, Stirlitz, I will ask you to stay, or the Case of the discontented CEO

I am generally beginning to fear that this confusion will continue for a very long time (C) M. Bulgakov, Master and Margarita

“In the event of termination of the employment contract with the head of the organization in accordance with paragraph 2 of Article 278 of this Code in the absence of those responsible actions (inaction) of the head, he is paid compensation in the amount determined by the employment contract, but not less than three times the average monthly salary, except for the cases provided for by this Code “( Article 279 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation” Guarantees to the head of the organization in case of termination of the employment contract “)

A very interesting case will be considered today in the Gagarinsky Court of Moscow.With the permission of the principal, I will tell you some factual circumstances of this dispute, which once again raises the insanely interesting, in my opinion, question of what happens to the labor status of such an employee as a general director after the decision of the general meeting or the sole participant of the company terminated his corporate credentials?

So, once upon a time there was a CEO of a fairly large holding. She lived with the owners of the business (100% of the parent company has, in turn, several shareholders) peacefully and amicably, for several years she was extended a fixed-term labor contract for a year and for the same period she was reassigned by the decision of the sole participant as CEO …

Then the structure of the share capital “at the top” of the group of companies changed as a result of a not quite friendly takeover, and in January 2017, by the decision of the sole participant, its powers of the CEO were terminated. Two EIOs are formed in the company – that is, two directors (one from each of the factions of business owners who do not quite trust each other), and three days later these persons are already in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities and begin to fully delegate the duties of general directors.

But there is a nuance.According to the employment contract with its former director, as in accordance with Article 279 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, in the event of early termination of the employment contract on the initiative of the Employer with the innocent behavior of the employee, the company is obliged to pay him a rather big compensation. The Code insists on a minimum threshold of three average monthly earnings; under an agreement with the Claimant, this amount is set at four average monthly earnings.

And one more detail. Average monthly earnings, according to the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 24.12.2007 No. 922 N 922 “On the specifics of the procedure for calculating the average salary” includes, for the purposes of calculation, not only wages, but also all bonuses (which the management team may have an amount equal to or even exceeding the regular salary) for the last 12 months.

And thus, if, for example, last year the director received bonuses and bonuses, then with a salary of, say, 2 rubles, her average monthly earnings can be 3 and 4 rubles.

I cannot, of course, argue for the defendant, but I suppose that the following simple arithmetic has lined up in the minds of his new leadership.If the termination of the employment contract with the former directors is concluded right at the same time in January 2017, then the company faces the full-scale obligation to pay compensation to it in the amount of four monthly salaries.

About two months remain until the expiration of her next one-year contract.

And then it’s clear, right? The company … does nothing.

That is, does not fire his former manager in accordance with paragraph 2 of Art. 278 of the Labor Code (termination of an employment contract with the head of an organization in connection with the adoption by an authorized body of a legal entity of a decision to terminate an employment contract): does not issue an order, does not make a corresponding entry in the work book, does not deny access to the building, continues to pay him the director’s salary, and remembers to include her on the payroll and timesheets as director.

A confused former director in a state of confusion continues to go to work, where, of course, he can no longer issue orders or conclude deals. Her role is mainly reduced to the fact that she carries new directors to local representative offices and introduces key employees and business partners. Introduces, so to speak, up to date.

And the company is patiently waiting – when its ex-director expires the term of the labor contract, fortunately, there is not long to wait.As soon as this date comes, the company quickly draws up its dismissal with an entry in the work book with reference to Art. 77 of the Labor Code (expiration of the contract), not Art. 278 TC and on this the plaintiff says goodbye.

And when she goes to court with a demand to recognize her employment contract as a general director nevertheless actually terminated ahead of schedule – in January, and not in March 2017, and to pay her due compensation, the defendant’s representatives say – wait a minute, we stopped in January corporate powers of the plaintiff, but not labor relations with him She went to work, received a salary, was noted in the time sheet until March.What is she unhappy with?

And here’s what. In my deep inner conviction labor relations between the company and the employee in the position of the CEO and his corporate powers in the same status, which have arisen or were lost in connection with the decision of the general meeting or the sole participant, are in an inextricable relationship: if the second is terminated, then inevitably, the first one also ceases, since the labor function of the general director (article 15 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation) precisely consists in discharging the duties of his sole executive body .

The conclusion that the director’s job responsibilities lie in the implementation of his corporate function of the sole executive body and the head of the enterprise follows from clause 2 of the Resolution of the Plenum of the Supreme Court of June 2, 2015 No. 21 [1]:

The labor function of the head of the organization, by virtue of part one of Article 273 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation with , is in the implementation of the management of the organization, including the performance of the functions of its sole executive body, that is, in the performance of actions on behalf of the organization to implement its rights and obligations arising from civil, labor, tax and other legal relations (the powers of the owner to own, use and dispose of the property of the organization, the rightholder of exclusive rights to the results of intellectual activity and equivalent means of individualization, the rights and obligations of the employer in labor relations with other employees of the organization, etc.)etc.) “.

The special labor role of such an employee as a general director is also emphasized by the Constitutional Court in clause 4 of the Resolution of March 15, 2005 No. 3-P:

“The legal status of the head of an organization (rights, duties, responsibility) differs significantly from the status of others employees, which is due to the specifics of his labor activity , place and role in the organization’s management mechanism: he manages the organization, including performing the functions of its sole executive body, performs legally significant actions on behalf of the organization (Article 273 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation; Clause 1 of Article 53 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation). By virtue of the concluded labor contract, the head of the organization, in the prescribed manner, exercises the rights and obligations of a legal entity as a participant in civil turnover, including the owner’s powers to own, use and dispose of the organization’s property, as well as the rights and obligations of the employer in labor and other labor, relations with employees, organizes the management of the production process and joint labor. ”

Accordingly, if the sole participant or the general meeting by its decision terminates the powers of the person as the general director, then his labor function as a manager terminates with him, and with it the labor legal relationship with the company as general director .Such an employee can be transferred to another position or fired, but he cannot continue to work as a general director. He is anyone after making such a decision in the company, but not the director.

When I first voiced this idea on Facebook, my classmates from the University, who are now leading the practice of labor law in large law firms, came to me in the comments and said – Masha, you are not right. The labor status of such a person as a general director can “easily” “outlive” and “disperse” with his “corporate” status.And as evidence, situations are cited when the general director cannot be fired, even if by the decision of the general meeting he is dismissed from office – illness, vacation, temporary disability, etc. (Article 81, Clause 1, Article 278 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation).

The late Supreme Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation also added fuel to the fire, which in the Resolution of the Presidium of the Supreme Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation dated April 2, 2013 No. 15815/12, said that reinstatement due to mistakes in transferring the former director to another position does not discredit the new director appointed by the participants and does not invalidate the transactions it has entered into.Thus, the Supreme Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation seemed to indirectly confirmed that yes, a company may have a “director in the labor sense” and “a director in the corporate sense” – it happens.

The legislator also does not add clarity – in corporate laws he speaks of the competence of the general meeting to make a decision on “d early termination of powers ” of the sole executive body (Article 33 of the Law on LLC, Article 48 of the Law on JSC), and in Article 278 TC – on the adoption by the authorized body of the legal entity of the decision on “ early termination of the employment contract ” with the head of the organization, thereby again hinting that these are different powers and different situations.

The native Research Center for Private Law, which in one of its expert opinions – remarks, indicated that “the termination of the powers of the body of a legal entity and the termination of the employment contract with it must not be confused” and that “the dismissal of the director and the termination of his powers are fundamentally different legal acts; the director may be deprived of his powers, but not dismissed (for example, when going on parental leave or when moving to the position of deputy director) ”[2].

And it seems that the dichotomy of corporate and labor legal relations (relations of external and internal representation) between the company and the person who performs (or performed) the functions of its sole executive body, and who is at the same time its employee, really suggests itself.

And indeed, the law directly provides for situations when such a person continues to be an employee, but no longer a director. This means that it turns out that the Defendant is right – a CEO removed from office by a corporate decision is not necessarily fired from the company.As my grandmother used to say, “one is not the third.”

So? No, not so, and here’s why:

The first thing that catches your eye is all known situations when the CEO’s employment status can “outlive” his corporate status (illness, pregnancy, vacation, registration errors when transferring to another position or dismissal , which lead to reinstatement in the previous position, etc.) serve to protect the rights of the employee as a socially vulnerable and weaker party in relations with the employer .And they are still directed not at ordinary, ordinary, but rather not quite normal situations , when it is important for the legislator to support the employee, to protect him from possible opportunism of the employer. That is, they are not a rule, but an exception to this rule, and an exception aimed at protecting the employee and only the employee.

And for this good purpose the legislator is ready to ignore the will of the shareholders. They say – Imyarek is no longer a director for us. And the TK says – no, the director (because he is sick, expecting a child, on vacation, or you made a mistake with the documents, firing him, and because of these mistakes I reinstate him).

Thus, the dichotomy of the labor and corporate status of a director can have legal significance only in exceptional cases – as a reaction of the legislator to the need to protect the labor rights of an employee upon termination of his powers as the head of an organization .

In all other cases, labor relations with the head of the organization cannot exist in isolation from the performance of his corporate powers and the will of the participants aimed at terminating such relations.

Actually, even the precedent that has become the subject of consideration of the YOU above is the flip side of the same coin: a company can screw up when a former director is fired, and he, of course, must be protected from the adverse consequences of his employer’s mistakes – reinstated at work with payment him all due for the missed time. This, however, does not compromise in any way the new director and his deal.

It is clear that YOU, like the ICPE, looked at this situation from their own and by no means “labor” bell tower – it was important for them to a) protect the turnover and transactions of the new director, which should not “fly off” from the fact that someone is there fired someone wrong; b) stop the situation when the dismissed directors brought disputes to the courts of general jurisdiction, which by their nature are corporate – for example, they challenged (and often successfully) the decision of the general meeting, which terminated their powers, or demanded their reinstatement in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, etc.

YOU and the Center, as it seems to me, tried to say the following – yes, all employees are socially vulnerable, and therefore labor laws are entitled to various “goodies” (impossibility to dismiss in pregnancy, the need to reinstate at work if they were fired with mistakes, etc.). We admit it. But we do not want to know anything about these “goodies” and anomalies that occasionally arise in companies like two directors – “corporate” and “labor” when it comes to the external representation of the company to third parties, its transactions and the corporate rights of shareholders to decide who they are. they want, and who does not – to see their director.For this sphere of relations, all the “freaks” that the humane TC produces, but for whom there is no place in the business turnover, simply do not exist.

Therefore, what was said above about the dual nature of the status of a manager should be supplemented – it not only reflects the need of labor legislation to protect the employee as a weak side, but also the counter need of turnover to be protected from all these nuances and subtleties of labor relations between society and its director.

And as a corporate lawyer I perfectly understand this logic and agree with it.But, insisting so harshly that the “corporate” to the left, and the “labor” to the right, the apologists of this position threw out the child with water, securing in the minds of many lawyers that labor and corporate legal relations between the company and its leader are not at all connected in any way and exist each separately in some of their beautiful universes, without points of contact with each other.

Meanwhile, of course, this is not the case.

Once again, the idea is very simple – if the general meeting or the only participant as the supreme body of the company expressed their will to terminate the powers of the CEO, then, of course, they also expressed their will to terminate the employment relationship with him as CEO.And thus they launched the procedure for his dismissal under Article 278 of the Labor Code.

It may so happen that the former CEO is needed by the company in some other capacity – a consultant, advisor, deputy for the new director, etc. Please, but then a conscientious employer is obliged to terminate an employment contract with him in the position of general director and conclude a new one – for him to perform a new job function. And, of course, to pay the employee all compensation in connection with the early termination of his “director’s” employment contract.

The fact that corporate decisions to terminate powers and a corporate decision to terminate an agreement with a director as an employee are the same thing, incidentally, is confirmed by the literal interpretation of corporate laws in comparison with Article 278 of the Labor Code. Watch your hands:

And article 33 of the LLC Law and Art. 48 of the Law on JSC, when discussing the powers of the general meeting (the sole participant) to make decisions on the appointment or dismissal of general directors, use the phrase “ Formation of executive bodies of the company and early termination of their powers “.

Separately, he does not mention the powers of the general meeting (the only participant) to make a decision to terminate the employment contract with the director of Article 33 of the LLC Law!

If we follow the logic that the decision of the general meeting of participants to terminate powers is not tantamount to making a decision to terminate the employment contract with the director, then this leads to the absurd conclusion that:

– firstly, taking into account the closed (that is exclusively listed in Article 33 of the Law on LLC) the list of competences of the general meeting / sole participant of the LLC – this body does not at all have the right to make a decision on the termination of the employment contract with the general director.

But then, it turns out that the director of an LLC on the grounds provided for by Articles 278, 279 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, the employer can never unilaterally dismiss, since his authorized body is never a general meeting / unit. participant – will not be able to make a decision on early termination of an employment contract with such a person. He does not have such a separate authority – to make decisions on the termination of the employment contract with the director, it is not mentioned in the Laws on LLC and JSC.

This, of course, contradicts the common sense of the legislator and the explanations of the Constitutional Court about the right of business owners “in order to achieve maximum efficiency of economic activity and rational use of property … integrity and safety, and terminate the employment contract with him “(Resolution of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation of 15.03.2005 N 3-P).

– and secondly, that each time in the decision, the participants must make a reservation that not only by this decision they terminate the powers of the general director, but also express their will to terminate the employment contract with him. If the second phrase is not in the minutes, then, in theory, the company cannot proceed to the procedure for dismissing a director in accordance with Article 278 of the Labor Code.

At the same time, in all honesty – have lawyers working a lot in the field of corporate law seen the decisions of the GMS or the OCA to terminate the powers of a director with such a special proviso?

The foregoing confirms that the attempts to dissolve in different directions the decision of the participants to terminate the powers of the director and their own decision to terminate his employment contract early are fundamentally wrong.This is one and the same (!), Only named in the TC and corporate laws in different words. A separate authority to decide on termination of an employment contract with a director is therefore not specified in article 33 of the Law on LLC or article 48 of the Law on JSC on the competence of the general meeting, that it is not required by the participants (shareholders) at all, since the decision to terminate the contractual relationship with the director is covered by the will of the participants to terminate his powers and does not require a separate external fixation in the decisions of the supreme body of society.

Similar conclusions can be reached by literal interpretation of the provisions of cl. 1 – 2 tbsp. 278 of the Labor Code and clause 8 of the Resolution of the Plenum of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation No. 21, which, when discussing the termination of an employment contract with the head in connection with the adoption by the authorized body of a legal entity or the owner of the organization’s property of a decision to terminate an employment contract, use the expressions “ decision to terminate an employment agreements “and” decision on early termination of powers of the head of the organization “as are synonymous, that is, interchangeable concepts (for example, in par.1 and 2, clause 8 of the Resolution of the Plenum of the RF Armed Forces No. 21).

Thus, the legislator and the Supreme Court emphasize that is legally indifferent to which terminology is used by the only participant in its decision to dismiss the general director from office – “to terminate the powers of the director” or “to terminate the employment contract with the director”.

In both cases, we are talking about both the termination of the director’s powers in the corporate sense of the word – that is, the impossibility for them to continue to make transactions and make other management decisions on behalf of the company, and the immediate termination of his job function and the onset of the employer’s obligation go to the procedure for registering the termination of labor relations with him in compliance with all the formalities of labor legislation (familiarization with the order, issuance of a work book, etc.);and make the payment of all compensations due due to the early termination of the contract.

This is the most serious problem that the “corporate” lawyers may have overlooked when they insisted on dividing the corporate relationship between the director and the company and the labor relationship between them.

If we agree that the company is not considered to have terminated the employment contract with the director after the decision of the general meeting is relieved of his powers, an excellent scheme emerges for employers to circumvent the requirements of Art.278 and 279 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation and non-observance of guarantees for heads of organizations upon dismissal at the initiative of the employer.

From now on, all employers who, on the one hand, would like to remove the CEO and appoint a new management, and, on the other, not pay the former director compensation in connection with early dismissal in accordance with Article 279 of the Labor Code and the norms of the labor contract, it will be enough measure:

(A) the term remaining before the expiration of the contract with the old director and the amount of salary that is due to him for this period; and

(B) the amount of compensation under Art.279 of the Labor Code, which is at least (and usually more than under employment contracts) three average monthly earnings.

At the same time, as it was said, the average monthly salary of the CEO is usually significantly higher than his regular salary.

If the amount (A) turns out to be significantly less than the amount (B), the company may simply not issue the dismissal of the dismissed from office by a corporate decision of the director, but “hold out” until the expiration date of the contract, keeping the former director during this period in an uncertain legal status (after all in the organization, other persons already perform the functions of real leaders) and then dismiss him with reference to Article 77 of the Labor Code.Naturally, without paying anything from what would be due to him in connection with the early termination of the contract.

Here one could argue that the role of compensation under Article 279 of the Labor Code is precisely that is compensatory , to financially support the manager in case of sudden dismissal. And what is there to compensate if the employee received exactly what he would have received in the ordinary situation of his dismissal due to the expiration of the term.

But let’s not forget – there was still no “just expiration”; Somewhere before this date, the shareholders interrupted the execution of the director’s powers by such a person, and then, in fact, retained the appearance of labor relations with him, for which the legislator should also not pat on the head, as well as for any abuse of the right.

Secondly, Article 279 of the Labor Code – unfortunately or fortunately – does not capture these subtleties: giving the former leader the right to at least three average monthly earnings, the article does not delve into how the dismissed leader actually developed further life and there is the fact that to compensate or not.

For example, theoretically, a dismissed director may not look for a new job for a day at all, but be employed somewhere else at least the next day after leaving the director’s post, or even be employed in another position in the company itself.Accordingly, with a certain degree of luck, the former director might not only not have favorable consequences in connection with his dismissal, but even make money on it. However, even in this situation, the right to compensation in connection with the early termination of the contract with him as a director, he still has by virtue of the direct indication of Art. 279 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation.

Obviously, the legislator proceeded from the fact that it would be better to allow a couple of lucky people who made a quick transition from one employer to another and took compensation with them, than leave hundreds of other former leaders without financial assistance who have not been able to find a new job for a long time …

In the same way, if the director is dismissed two weeks (five days, one day) before the end of the term of his contract, and compensation for early termination under the contract with him is several average monthly earnings, the right to the whole, and not proportional to the remaining term of his the contractual part of the compensation such an employee is entitled to.

If the norm of Article 279 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation is too clumsy and not quite adequate to all possible layouts and life situations that may arise after the termination of labor relations with the general director, this is probably a reason for a legislative initiative or at least discussion in the professional community.

But this does not give employers any reason to “rule” it through such schemes.

If, with the light hand of the court, the scheme goes into practice, it will be very, very sorry.
