Sweetheart clauses give incoming MTA chairman Jay Walder a possible $850G parachute

The next MTA chairman could get an $850,000 golden parachute to cushion his fall if he gets quickly ousted from the top post, sources said Wednesday.

 

Under a tentative agreement with Gov. Paterson, management consultant Jay Walder would walk away with a massive six-figure payout if he's booted without cause.

 

The deal promises that Walder gets a year's salary of $350,000 as severance if he gets let go at any point in his six-year term set by state legislation.

 

He also would get a as much as $5,000 a month housing allowance for a year, sources said.

 

But in an unusual pact, Walder also gets another $500,000 if he's pushed out after as little as 24 hours, sources briefed on the terms said.
