A CEO has been paid £1.1m by cosmetic company Coty despite not actually doing a day's work for the company.

Elio Sceti was due to take up the reins at the company when he changed his mind just a week before his start date. However, the company honoured Mr Sceti's contract and paid out the whopping severance payment, equivalent to a year's salary. Now that sounds like the sort of job we could all do with!
