Shareholder resolution filed at GEO Group
There are currently three lawsuits alleging forced labor/human trafficking at GEO immigrant detention centers... Human Rights performance is critical to GEO’s reputation and long-term growth. In order to ensure that the company is adequately respecting human rights in its facilities and meeting the objectives outlined in the portion of its Global Human Rights Policy (the “Policy”) that addresses “Respect for Our Inmates and Detainees,” which lacks specificity, additional public disclosure regarding GEO’s implementation is necessary... Shareholders request that GEO report annually on its website to investors, beginning in September 2019, on how it implements the portion of the Policy that addresses “Respect for Our Inmates and Detainees,” including: 1. How GEO ensures that its employees are aware of, and know how to apply, the company’s commitment to inmate/detainee human rights; 2. Metrics used to assess human rights performance, including any process for independent outside verification of such metrics; and 3. How GEO remedies shortcomings in human rights performance.
