Double dipping professors
Two University of Minnesota professors are in trouble with Georgia Tech for possible double-dipping of salaries and expense payments, reported the Star Tribune.
Professors Francois Sainfort and his wife Julie Jacko both signed contracts in October to move to the university in January. However, Georgia Tech officials said the school renewed both professors’ contracts.
The professors’ attorney said Saturday that the couple is ready to have the situation reviewed by the Atlanta school’s attorney general. University officials said they will cooperate with any investigation but that they hope it is just an employment dispute.
The couple was making just over $400,000 a year at Georgia Tech. Their salaries at the University will top $500,000 a year.
