The First Nations University of Canada has reached a settlement with one of its fired employees.
Leonzo Barreno, the former director of international and special programs, was fired last August amid allegations of financial mismanagement after being suspended in February while a forensic audit was performed on university records. Barreno has denied any wrongdoing.
During an arbitration hearing Monday and Tuesday, Barreno and the FNUC reached a settlement and have resolved their differences, according to a news release.
Leonzo Barreno was born and raised in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. He obtained his primary and high school education in Guatemala. He came to Saskatchewan in 1989
