Show Notes

THE VIOLATION TRACKER - PART 1

Organisations are often quick to showcase their responsible business achievements. But in some cases, there is another side to the story.
This is why our special guest on the 'PAYING FOR GOOD' podcast this week S4 E5, Philip Mattera, set up the Violation Tracker in the US five years ago. Philip has, to date, recorded more than 400,000 cases, a quarter of which relate to:

  • people not being paid their proper wages
  • workplace safety
  • gender and racial pay discriminations
  • mismanagement of pension plans.

Aggregated penalties total around $38 billion!

Your action takeaway:

The Violation Tracker is free to search and display results, and Philip encourages you to use it to promote greater corporate responsibility. What does the tracker say about your organisation and those you invest in? What role can you play in addressing these transgressions?
