SNC-Lavalin employees come forward for ethical violations under amnesty program
SNC-Lavalin says 32 employees admitted ethical violations under the company's three-month amnesty program which ended Aug. 31.
The company says no new information of a material nature was revealed, but it confirmed its assessment of corruption risk.
SNC launched the amnesty program after both internal and police investigations into allegations of fraud and corrupt practices in Canada and abroad by former employees.
CEO Robert Card said the company has worked to implement a new ethics and compliance program.
The company has been under scrutiny since it disclosed last year $56 million in questionable payments, leading to criminal fraud charges being filed against several former executives.
