Rhee on Corporate Social Responsibility
Robert J. Rhee has posted Crisis, Rescue and Corporate Social Responsibility Under American Corporate Law on SSRN with the following abstract:
This chapter discusses the legal issues of rescue and corporate social responsibility during times of public crisis. It analyzes a corporate board’s fiduciary duty related to the management of a public crisis and the provision of aid to government and the public. The thesis is that American corporate law adequately provides corporate boards authority to assume broad principles of corporate social responsibility, and that during a public crisis this authority is specially recognized in the enabling statutes of corporate law and should be broadened even further to pursue the public good in exigent circumstances.
