Corporate Liability

Work Related Deaths and Criminal Prosecutions (Third Edition)

Edited by: Gerard Forlin, Louise Smail

The UK's Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 has created a new offense of corporate manslaughter. This book is an expert guide to general procedure and practice surrounding this topic. The third edition of this key text is up-to-date following a number of developments in the UK since publication of the last edition, including new chapters on sports law, managing the media, emergency services, the Far East/China, and nuclear and power regeneration. The book also focuses on recent significant statutory changes in the UK, case law of potentially wider relevance, and international developments including: the cases of Cotswold Geotechnical (Holdings) Ltd [2011] * Baker v Quantum Clothing Group [2011] * Vieola Ltd and Tangerine Confectionary Ltd - CofA judgment awaited * Bodycote Hip [2010] * statuary interpretation of and cases brought under the Corporate Manslaughter and Culpable Homicide Act 2007 * Rule 43 reporting by coroners after inquests * global developments - an introduction of two new offenses by Ireland on corporate manslaughter and grossly negligent management causing death; intended introduction of corporate manslaughter legislation in Gibraltar; and Australian implementation of the Safe Work Act 2009. All these recent developments provide both new opportunities for increased safety and well-being in the workplace and potential pitfalls for organizations.
