Chesapeake Energy, the Oklahoma City-based natural gas producer that is embroiled in a corporate governance scandal, promises an unusually large number of its employees a payment if the company changes hands, according to Reuters. About 1,600 Chesapeake employees, or almost 12% of the company’s workforce, are eligible for change-of-control bonuses.
