if an employee says they have authorization to order something salisited on the phone and we dont want the service do we have to pay?
1 Answer from Attorneys
The legal issue is "apparent authority," and a third-party's reasonable belief about that employee's authority. For instance, it is reasonable to believe that a "vice president" can order office supplies. It may not be reasonable to believe that the "janitor" can order a new corporate car.
