Multinational Enterprises and Workplace Reproductive Health: Extending Corporate Social Responsibility

PDF · Rebecca Kathleen Atkins · Aug-21-2012 · 40 VAND. J. TRANSNAT'L L. 233 (2007)

Corporate social responsibility is a relatively new approach to the protection of human rights. While the human rights to whole-body health and workplace health are long-standing, the right to reproductive health is a new topic of discussion. This Note examines the right to reproductive health in the workplace and proposes that it would be best protected by imposing an affirmative duty on multi-national enterprises via corporate social responsibility. Origins of human rights, corporate social responsibility, and reproductive health are discussed before turning to the developing stalemate between multi-national enterprises and less developed countries.
