What is the nature of the duty of fidelity? Is it just a confused replication of status fiduciary accountability or is it something more?

That analysis is reviewed here. The historical arguments are found to be defective and the content claims opaque. We are left to wonder how the supposed duty uniquely regulates employee conduct.
