MONTREAL, Sept, 30 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - We were informed this morning that one of our employees who was working for Pomerleau for less than two years was arrested regarding an investigation undertaken by the provincial anticorruption unit (UPAC) concerning the public call for tenders for the reconstruction of the Turcot interchange project.
Pomerleau was astonished and extremely disappointed to learn that an employee attempted to sell Pomerleau's confidential information regarding this project for personal gain. This employee was immediately suspended without pay and Pomerleau has officially made a complaint against him.
Pomerleau has offered its complete collaboration to UPAC, which it thanks for its vigilance, and reiterates its commitment to and respect for the highest standards of ethics and integrity.
The company will make no further comment during the course of the legal inquiries.
