England Links Mesothelioma to New Corporate Manslaughter Law

In what could turn out to be an enormously controversial issue, the UK has recently passed a corporate manslaughter law that would hold companies liable for certain actions that lead to the death or deaths of their workers. The issue is explored by the Times Online in a probing article.

The most directly relevant passage of the article appears below:

“In the UK about 400 people (employees, self-employed people, and members of the public) are killed in incidents through the operation of commerce each year. Long term deaths bring the figure much higher. These include circumstances where a company has been responsible for causing the contracting of a condition (such as asbestosis or mesothelioma) whose development takes many years to cause death.”

Thid could be a very daunting development for American companies if this law or its underlying principles are ever adopted domestically.
