"Corporate Secrecy: An Invisible Impediment to Moral Decision Making"

In an increasingly competitive technological age, legal mechanisms for corporate secrecy — such as nondisclosure, non-compete, and mandatory binding arbitration agreements — have become the industry standard. To ensure that individuals and corporations can be held morally accountable for their decisions in society, people must have the opportunity to exercise informed moral decision making despite the widespread use of such mechanisms. Sabina's thesis critiques the legal implementation of corporate secrecy through analysis of the ethical impact of secrecy on the moral decisions on corporations, employees, and society at large, and ponders whether legal reform has the potential to spur ethical decision making in corporations.
