WestJet Announces Retention Of Professional Services Firm EY

Published on : Monday, March 14, 2016

westjetWestJet today announced it has retained EY (Ernst & Young LLP) to provide an independent, third-party assessment of WestJet’s current investigative and reporting procedures as well as practices for a safe and harassment-free work environment for its employees.

 

“Last week, a wrongful dismissal lawsuit was filed against WestJet by a former employee,” said Gregg Saretsky, WestJet President and CEO. “WestJet intends to defend this lawsuit in court. However, the broader issues of sexual assault and harassment in the workplace that were raised are matters we take most seriously. WestJet has always had a zero tolerance policy with respect to these matters and remains committed to ensuring that we provide a safe and harassment-free work environment for our employees and guests.

 

“We asked our employees to come forward with any information they might have regarding assault or harassment in the workplace and we have heard from some WestJetters through internal channels. In light of this new information, I have asked our Executive Vice-President, People and Culture, Mark Porter, to engage EY to conduct an independent investigation into the issues WestJetters have brought to our attention.”

 

“EY is recognized globally as a leader in human resources consulting and we’re confident that with their help we can build upon our current practices to continue to reflect the values and culture that WestJetters uphold,” said Mark Porter.
