Corporate Rap Sheets

CORPORATE RAP SHEETS

Just about every day there is a new case of corporate malfeasance—bribery, tax evasion, price-fixing, defrauding of government or consumers, environmental violations, unfair labor practices and much more. Given the frequency of these scandals, it is difficult to keep track of which corporation has done what.

The Corporate Rap Sheets below are dossiers summarizing the most significant crimes, violations and other questionable activities of the world’s largest and most controversial companies.

Corporate Rap Sheets are written by Philip Mattera, who heads the Corporate Research Project of Good Jobs First and publishes the Dirt Diggers Digest, a blog on corporate misconduct. This website is a work in progress; new rap sheets will be added on a regular basis. Those additions are announced in Dirt Diggers posts and its Twitter feed.
