I realize this is not a forum to get legal advice, but I am sure some one has been through this before. I had an employee sign a contract with a vendor with out my knowledge. The person then signed for the first shipment. This employee is not in a leadership roll and is in a lower level position. The contract is a multi year commitment that requires minimum orders weekly.
I contacted the vendor in question about this, and they said it was fine to op out of the contract with a penalty (over $1000 per month for the remainder of the contract).
Has any one run into this before? What did you do?
I could hire a lawyer, but I just don't get how some one can sign a contract for your company who has now authority to do so and have it be a valid contract.
