WILMINGTON, Delaware (Reuters) - Laid-off staff of Solyndra Llc, the bankrupt solar panel maker that owes more than $500 million to the U.S. government, are fighting the company's request to pay unnamed employees $500,000 in bonuses.

Solyndra asked for bankruptcy court approval for the payments earlier this month, saying the bonuses will ensure it can retain the 21 staff to complete tax filings and the sale of the company.

Tuesday is the deadline for bids for Solyndra from "turnkey" buyers who want to restart production, bring back some of the laid-off staff and keep the company operating.
