Corporate Lawbreaking and Interactive Compliance: Resolving the Regulation-Deregulation Dichotomy

By Jay A. Sigler; Joseph E. Murphy | Go to book overview

The inspectors understood the program thoroughly and were most concerned with management's support of their work, should there be any problem implementing the new program. I expressed my support and discussed the basis of their feelings.

All in all, the session went well, with a lot of "clear the air" type comments being made by both labor and management.

Whether Camden County's experiment with interactive corporate compliance proves successful remains to be seen. Thus far, the development of the Silver Platter Award has exhibited all the characteristics normally attributed to the creation of new government programs (i.e., sensitivity to politics, interest groups, and the implementing bureaucracy). The program's requirements and rewards have been purposely kept simple and straightforward so that the results can be easily measured. Positive rewards have been constructed, and a target audience has been identified. We have indications that top
