Let’s Talk About Corporations | Monetary sanctions against corporations: options for reform
Monetary sanctions are the main method of punishing corporations for breaching the law. They are a mainstay of enforcement in many areas, including competition and consumer law, securities and investment law, environment law, bribery and corruption, privacy, and money-laundering. In this presentation, Professor Brent Fisse and Dr Radha Ivory examine the utility of these sanctions, with particular focus on the ALRC recommendations in the Final Report on corporate criminal liability (2020) and the escalation of maximum penalties under the Treasury Laws Amendment (More Competition, Better Prices) Act 2022 (Cth).
