Over-Enforcement

ILR is leading the business community’s campaign to address irrational enforcement practices that compromise the rule of law, and fundamental fairness. ILR consistently encourages companies and enforcement agencies to work in partnership to most effectively prevent waste, fraud, and corruption. To further that partnership, we encourage, among other things, the adoption of common-sense enforcement policies that result in punishments that are proportional to alleged offenses and incentivize companies to invest and develop compliance programs.
