Canadian engineering giant SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. is asking all its employees to take a pay cut for the next three months, a tactic that a growing list of companies is using but that legal experts say comes with some risks and complications.

In an internal memo to employees dated March 26, SNC chief executive Ian Edwards said that as business slows because of the coronavirus pandemic, it is critical for the future of the company that it immediately implements stringent measures to cut costs.
