SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. is offering limited time amnesty to employees who report potential corruption and anti-competition matters.
To be eligible for amnesty, an employee must file a request with SNC-Lavalin’s chief compliance officer between June 3 and Aug. 31, 2013. The company says it will not make claims for damages or unilaterally terminate employees who voluntarily provide a truthful and full report during this time period. The offer does not extend to company executives or anyone who directly profited from an ethical violation.
The amnesty program is intended to assist SNC-Lavalin in its efforts to fully gather and assess the facts associated with corporate ethics matters in order to resolve them.
This is the first time a Canadian company has initiated an amnesty program.
