    内容简介

    本研究调查了监管强制披露对同行公司的影响。使用职业安全与健康管理局(OSHA)的政策,根据罚款是否高于阈值和回归不连续性设计发布新闻稿,我们发现OSHA的新闻稿促使同行公司不仅在受制裁设施所在地区增加安全投资,而且在其他地区的子公司也增加安全投资。横截面分析的结果与同行公司在员工之间的内部信息传递一致,提高员工的安全意识是一种可能的机制。尽管如此,我们发现OSHA同行发布的一个意想不到的后果是,它们导致同行公司更多的环境违规行为,这很可能是由公司内部资源重新分配造成的。总体而言,我们的结果表明,监管执法披露具有广泛的威慑作用,但可能会减少对其他法规的遵守。

    This study investigates the effects of regulatory enforcement disclosures on peer firms. Using Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s policy to issue press releases based on whether the financial penalty is above a threshold and the regression discontinuity design, we find that OSHA’s press release induces peer firms to increase safety investments not only in the region where the sanctioned facility resides but also in subsidiaries located in other areas. Results from cross-sectional analyses are consistent with peer firms’ intra-firm information transfer among employees raising their safety awareness being a possible mechanism. Nonetheless, we find an unintended consequence of OSHA’s peer releases that they lead to more environmental violations by peer firms, likely driven by within-firm resource reallocation. Overall, our results suggest that regulatory enforcement disclosures have a widespread deterrence effect but may reduce compliance with other regulations.
