There is a MNC which is very big and globally established and has many many sectors. I do not work there but I know that there is lot of corruption happening there.
There is a rule that every employee has to get the medical checkup done inside the office and the doctor would give them a heads up if they are healthy or not. If doctor says that they are healthy then only employee can enter the work.
Now the problem is that this doctor is very corrupt. He gives wrong medicines and it is compulsory to buy medicines from the in-house medical store only. A person earning Rs. 12k per month is purchasing medicines of Rs 1k in a month and it is very difficult.
Employees have tried and done lot of complaints but there is no gain out of it as of now.
I really want to help this situation and stop the corruption happening there.
Please advise as from where I should start and what I should do.May 14, 2020 at 9:08 am #354942
www. birorbusinessintegrity. com/ pdf/ publications/ Tort litigation against multinational corporations by Richard Meeran. pdf, reads:
“conventional tort litigations has been increasingly successful in holding multinational corporations (MNCs) accountable for human rights violations in developing countries… Various factors are critical to victims’ access to a legal remedy against a parent MNC… Of fundamental importance is the availability of funding and lawyers willing and able to represent victims in this complex, hugely expensive and risky type of litigation.. If cases survive inevitable legal procedural challenges, MNC cases to-date have been settled before trial due to the high stakes, especially for the MNC, of a trial.”
Reads to me that for you “to help this situation and stop the corruption happening there”, in the MNC you are referring to, you will need a lawyer who is able and willing to file a legal action against the MNC.
Look online for lawyers able and willing to do file legal action against the particular MNC you are referring to, and gather information from them on the topic.

Thanks for your reply. Considering current situations and scope it might not be possible for me to reach out to lawyers. Maybe the entire MNC is not corrupt but only few people are. I initially though of approaching some owners who had build this organisation 50 years ago. Do you think thats a correct direction?
Thanks.May 14, 2020 at 10:33 am #354956
I don’t see the disadvantage in you “approaching some owners who had build this organization 50 years ago”.
You wrote earlier that “Employees have tried and done a lot of complaints but there is no gain out of it as of now”- did they complain to the owners? (if they did, you will not be telling the owners anything they didn’t hear before!)
What is it that the employees “have tried”, and who is it that they complained to?

The employees have complained to same department managers and their just superiors. But I am not thinking of approaching anyone from same department. I am thinking to approach someone who is the real owner. To be honest I dont have owner’s contact details also. All I will do is just search them on Google and see if I can reach out to someone.May 14, 2020 at 11:22 am #354974
I am not aware of a disadvantage to you if you manage to contact a real owner (but I am not part of the business world, not on a local level and not on an international level, as in the case of Multinational Corporations (MNCs), other than a customer). If you are not aware of any significant disadvantage to you in contacting an owner in this context, do so!
You will know that at the least you did what you could do to help correct corruption. It is a shame, how much corruption (abuse of power for one’s private gain) there is in the world, in every town, city, country and often within homes. I wish it wasn’t so.

I am not aware as how is the owner as a human being and not sure if it will be a disadvantage to me in any way. However I will try to contact them and let them know as what is happening in their organisation. Just to see if anything positive can happen.
It is indeed a shame that poor people are taken advantage of in such a manner.
Lets see what I can do.
Thanks for your support as always. 🙂May 15, 2020 at 7:47 am #355152
You are welcome. I appreciate your concern for people being taken advantage of, and your efforts to try to help them, to do what you can do “to get rid of corruption”. Post again anytime.
