This chapter discusses the concept of corporate crime and corporate criminal responsibility. It also describes two major theories of corporate criminal liability: identification and imputation. Under the identification theory, the basis for liability is that the acts of certain natural persons are actually the acts of the corporation. Imputation is grounded in vicarious liability. According to this theory, the corporation is liable for the acts and intent of its employees, acting on behalf of the corporation, which are imputed to the entity.

Keywords:   corporate crime, corporate criminal responsibility, corporate criminal liability, identification theory, imputation
