Audio recording of "Business track: How to use public documents to cut through corporate PR spin, dig into corporate misconduct and reveal undue big business influence," a session at the IRE 2023 conference in Orlando on Friday, June 23, 2023.

Session description: Companies spent a lot of the past year pointing to outside influences allegedly impacting their operations: a dramatic rise in retail theft, an increase in worker wages, supply chain issues and inflation. Meanwhile, those same companies – many of whom posted record profits - were hit with billions of dollars in fines for stealing worker wages, cheating consumers and degrading the environment. In this panel, learn how to dig into company behavior, using Violation Tracker, the world’s largest, publicly available regulatory database of civil and criminal corporate penalties, as well as budgets, public records requests, campaign contributions and other documents. Cut through the corporate PR and secrecy to tell the complete story of some of the most powerful entities when it comes to making decisions that impact all of us.
