This is not legal advice.

This post contains commonplace USA provincialism.

It is not clear that a contract is invalid because an
employee exceeded his authority when making it.

Being able to pull out a disclaimer signed off by a co-worker
or workers, especially for a sum, would muddy any actions considerably.
Even a small sum. A petty cash sum.
Whether that co-worker followed all the company procedures
in filing the contract, getting approval, etc. should
be moot. Those are issues between him and the company.

The same basic principles that give an employer rights
to your home work, bind the employer to the actions
that your co-worker takes as an employee.
This is basic. If a Wal-mart employee
shoves a mop handle into your herniated groin, you would
take action against Wal-mart not the employee.

Reasonable-man-being-prudent test would seem to be an issue,
for the co-worker to avoid problems.

If a company pursued action, an immediate & publicized
countersuit for breach of contract, or harassment would give many
corporations pause.

There was a scam where a disreputable plating company
would promise many coats and a finish like that on the
X pens. They would get a 'small sample order' from a junior
purchasing agent or whomever. The price would not be nailed down, just that
it would not be much. When the purchasing company wanted
to not pay the $50,000 to $100,000 bill, the scammers
would go to court for breach of contract and deadbeat-itis.
This was apparently a successful scam. I knew one
scammee, his fortune 100 company paid, they didn't want the publicity.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
