Abercrombie & Fitch boss grounded

Also, Jeffries would have to pay some of the $4 million back if he leaves the company before his his contract runs out in February 2014.

Many companies have limited executives’ use of company airplanes, but reimbursing is an unusual move.

Jeffries personal use of the plane averaged $850,000 a year between 2006 and 2008.
