Corporate “Personal Responsibility” for Bad Choices

Bad choices can cause devastating harm to families.  Corporations know this already.  Unfortunately, some corporations still  intentionally take chances with people’s safety in order to increase the “bottom line”.  When corporate choices result in harm to individuals, the offending corporation must take responsibility.  Under law, a corporation is treated as a “person”.  “Person” status benefits corporations in many respects, including giving them the right to contract and reap certain tax benefits.  By the same token, “person” status requires corporations to take “personal responsibility” for their harmful actions.  If they refuse to take personal responsibility, ordinary people can bring corporations to justice in court.
