A Primer on Corporate Liability for Employees' Civil Wrongs and Criminal Acts and Omissions by Matthew C. McCann
Employers need to be aware of corporate civil and criminal liability for their employees' actions under both federal and state law. In addition to the relevant federal sources of law, including appellate case law and United States Attorney Guidelines, each state has its own common and statutory law addressing these issues. This article concentrates on both generally applicable federal provisions and New York common law.
