Corporate Manslaughter Charges
Since 2012 there has been a significant rise in Corporate Manslaughter charges in the UK being brought against companies. The number of charges has risen by 40%. The charge can be brought where death is caused by management failures.
The law is regulated by the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007. A charge of corporate manslaughter requires the following elements to be proved:
- The defendant is a corporation, government department, police force or partnership;
- The defendant owed a duty of care to the deceased, for example, a duty owed by an employer to its employees or a duty owed as an occupier of premises;
- There was a gross breach of that duty of care by the defendant;
- The way in which its activities were managed or organised by its senior management;
- Management was a substantial element in the breach; and
- The gross breach of the defendant’s duty caused or contributed to the death.
