Employee share ownership is generally put forward as a method of strengthening social ties in the company and a tool for sharing the fruits of growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has inflicted permanent financial damage to businesses and, unfortunately, forced them to consider worst-case-scenarios to mop up liquidity problems. In order to reduce the social cost of the crisis to preserve jobs, companies are called upon to act in solidarity with their employees by promoting employee share ownership. Employee Share Ownership and Impacts on Organizational Value and Behavior gathers informational feedback on the practice of employee share ownership and its effects on the attitude and value of companies and its ability to alleviate the financial damage of the COVID-19 pandemic. Covering topics such as family firms, attitudinal effects, and quality of governance, this book provides an essential resource for employee ownership professionals, business managers, researchers, politicians, decision makers, cooperative businesses, business students, professors, researchers, and academicians.

The Oxford Handbook of Fiduciary Law provides a comprehensive overview of critical topics in fiduciary law and theory through chapters authored by leading scholars. The Handbook opens with surveys of the many fields of law in which fiduciary duties arise, including agency law, trust law, corporate law, pension law, bankruptcy law, family law, employment law, legal representation, health care, and international law. Drawing on these surveys, the Handbook offers a synthetic analysis of fiduciary law's key concepts and principles. Chapters in the Handbook explore the defining features of fiduciary relationships, clarify the distinctive fiduciary duties that arise in these relationships, and identify the remedies available for breach of fiduciary duties. The volume also provides numerous comparative perspectives on fiduciary law from eminent legal historians and from scholars with deep expertise in a diverse array of the world's legal systems. Finally, the Handbook lays the groundwork for future research on fiduciary law and theory by highlighting cross-cutting themes, identifying persistent theoretical and practical challenges, and exploring how the field could be enriched through empirical analysis and interdisciplinary insights from economics, philosophy, and psychology. Unparalleled in its breadth and depth of coverage, The Oxford Handbook of Fiduciary Law represents an invaluable resource for practitioners, policymakers, scholars, and students in this essential field of law.
