— Abm Corporation is cutting more than 50 jobs in Wyoming, including the Wyoming Corporate Services Branch, after a federal investigation into allegations of fraud and abuse.
The company said Monday that it has agreed to pay $2.5 million to the state of Wyoming for the positions it lost, as well as to pay for relocation expenses, the Associated Press reported.
The federal investigation was triggered by a complaint by a former employee alleging that AbmCorp employees violated state and federal laws.
The investigation was led by the U.S. attorney for the District of Wyoming, which also has jurisdiction in Wyoming.
Abm Corporation has been operating in Wyoming since 2002.
It has more than 4,000 employees in Wyoming and several other states, according to the company.
The move comes just days after Abm announced plans to expand its corporate services operations in the U and Mexico.
It is the third expansion of its corporate service division in Mexico.
