Legal Question

Asked on: 12/11/09, 8:19 pm

I was employed as an office manager for a company, the company had financial problems so it was sold. The debts were taken over by the new company. I found out now that the man that came in for our advertisement stated that when it came to signing for an add in the yellow book that anyone could sign the document due to we were just employees and not owners. Now I am being sued for no one paying the yellow book ad. I was an employee and was never told that I would be liable for the debt. How can this be? I sign all sorts of papers at in my current position with another company and would never dream of being liable for anything financially with the documents.

Please advise...I had no connection to the company except as an hourly employee
