Company Response

CoreCivic's response

For several years, our company has had in place a detailed Human Rights Policy that clearly outlines our commitments regarding resident rights and treatment, including legal rights, safety and security, healthcare, reentry programming, visitation and standards of living. We believe that this shareholder proposal has already been substantially implemented through our policies, practices, procedures and public disclosures relating to our evaluation of executive compensation... [T]he holistic approach used in evaluating the performance of the company’s senior executives and determining their compensation includes consideration of each of their contributions to furthering CoreCivic’s strategic goals, including our commitment to the human rights and welfare of the individuals entrusted to our care.

... All work programs at our U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facilities are completely voluntary and operated in full compliance with ICE standards, including federally established minimum wage rates for detainee volunteer labor. Detainees are subject to no disciplinary action whatsoever if they choose not to participate in the work program... We are committed to providing access to high quality healthcare for every individual entrusted to our care.
