Salido, for his part, participated as a speaker at the third round table of the congress, on the remuneration of social managers. His paper dealt with the possibility or not of making compatible the functions of administrator of a company with work for others in the same one and the juridical nature of the bonds that this situation generates. In short, to determine the status of the matter in terms of the so-called “bond theory” after the reform of the Spanish law of Capital Companies. The academician concluded that “the compatibility between the position of director and a worker with an ordinary work contract is still possible, both in the opinion of the General Directorate of Registries and Notaries and the most recent jurisprudence”.
