About Corporate Liability: Work Related Deaths and Criminal Prosecutions

The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 has created a new offence of corporate manslaughter. This new edition of Corporate Liability: Work Related Deaths and Criminal Prosecutions is the only book to provide, in a single source, an expert guide to general procedure and practice surrounding this topic.

The new edition of this key text on corporate manslaughter brings you right up to date following a number of developments since publication of the last edition including new chapters on:
Sports law; Managing the media; Emergency services; Far East/China; Nuclear and power regeneration.

The new edition focusses on significant statutory changes, 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 include: Introduction of two new offences 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 organisations.
