Miskov wants public to see top managers’ salaries
Economy minister Juraj Miskov from the ruling SaS party has called on fully or partly owned state companies to disclose the salaries of top managers as he wants the public to know how much state nominees in the companies are being paid.
At present the Act on Access to Information does not impose this kind of obligation on the companies, but Miskov is hoping that the companies will provide the requested information voluntarily.
A change to the law might be pushed through in future, but the minister believes that revealing the salaries of top managers who are on taxpayers’ payroll is the right thing to do.
Once, or if, the salaries do become accessible to the public, we might all be in for a pretty big shock, especially considering recently leaked information about the perks of certain managers in companies like electricity grid operator SEPS.
