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 will focus on significant recent 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
  • 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.
