Inequitable labor practices include non-disclosure agreements, non-compete provisions, “no poaching” agreements, and mandatory arbitration provisions. These practices represent financial, operational, regulatory, and reputational risks for investors given that courts, regulators, and legislators from across the political spectrum view them with suspicion and are moving to limit the scope of their application – where they are not prohibited outright. Inequitable labor practices contribute to sluggish wage growth and impact the overall growth of the economy.
CtW Investment Group is engaging with 31 issuers over their inequitable labor practices. You can find more information on our efforts here:
