At the same time Kodak is cutting costs by laying workers off, it looks like the company wants to offer some employees more money.
Kodak has asked a U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for permission to give some workers incentives to stay.
Kodak calls it a "continuity plan," according to court documents.
About $13.5 million would be offered to just over 300 employees.
According to court documents it would include certain manager levels, based on skills and leadership.
Kodak said in paperwork that these people are critical to the company's on-going business and restructuring.
The bankruptcy court will take a look at the request later in April.
