Violation Tracker UK is produced by Good Jobs First, a Washington, DC-based non-governmental organisation focused on corporate and government accountability. GJF’s Corporate Research Project provides tools to assist campaigners, public officials, journalists, academics and others in analyzing the conduct of companies and industries. Among those tools is the original U.S. Violation Tracker, introduced in 2015 and expanded numerous times since then.
Good Jobs First gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the following funders that currently make this database and website possible: the Network for Social Change Charitable Trust, the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, and an anonymous UK donor. Founding support also came from the Joffe Charitable Trust, the Reva & David Logan Foundation, and from Good Jobs First in-kind.
Violation Tracker UK builds upon Good Jobs First’s 20 years of cumulative experience in gathering, refining and posting official data of many kinds, including Subsidy Tracker, Tax Break Tracker, and Covid Stimulus Watch (as well as Violation Tracker).
The work on Violation Tracker UK is led by Philip Mattera, research director of Good Jobs First and head of the Corporate Research Project. Any inquiries about the database should be directed to him at [email protected].
