Guillermo Quesada

Correction made to the headline to ¢10.4 million monthly and not ¢1.4 million.

QCOSTARICA- Without question Guillermo Quesada has to have the best job and best employer in the country: deputy manager at the Banco de Costa Rica (BCR).

Quesada was suspended with pay last March. And that pay is? ¢10.4 million colones monthly, collecting so far a total of ¢73 million colones to stay home, this at a time when the BCR is eliminating 250 positions in response to a consulting report that it has too much staff. The cut will allow the bank to save ¢9 billion colones yearly.

The BCR board of directors last March suspended Quesada for three months. The bank said at the time that, “basically it is a normal procedure, as with any other official of the bank … we discussed a number of issues and there was a recommendation to take precautionary measures, one of which was to suspend with pay,” explained at the time, Paola Mora, a vice-president with the public owned bank.

No details of the suspension were given, as reported by La Nacion on March 10, 2015.

In a report by on March 11, 2015, Quesada, who has worked at the bank for the last 32 years, said he was unaware of the anonymous complaint against him and his suspension resulting from his refusal to resign.

“Although I do not share the bank’s action, I await in peace and quiet the outcome of the investigation,” Quesada said back in March.
