You did not read my reasoning, if you had you would have understood that each of my answers was backed up by law -
No. 1 - Would your instructor simply disregard the principles of "apparent" authority and "implied" authority - these are not expressly given by the principal, especially "apparent" authority which is no authority at all, yet if a third party relies on the actions of the agent showing "apparent" authority, the agent binds the principal
2. For this answer, I apologize for misreading the question; however, if you read my reasoning, you would have realized that I knew exactly what I was talking about in that I described the purpose for which the 1967 law was enacted:
" It is antidiscrimination legislation protecting those who are 40 years old and over"
4. I still say, "None of the above" the last part of my answer was cut off. What I had written was, if I had to choose, I would choose "work for hire". A company hires X "to work in its shipping office, accepting deliveries and dealing with...etc."
He is a shipping clerk, pure and simple, nothing more
From the description given, what characteristics of an agent does he possess - None What part of his duties - receiving shipments - are characteristics of an agent - None
there is no way he can be classified as an "agent"
It would be impossible for anyone to conclude that he is anything more than a mere employee or "work for hire" at best
I don't know what your course of study leads to, but no matter what it is, sound reasoning is always the basis and starting point in analyzing a situation and being able to recognize issues. Just keep that in mind, but only if you want
I'm not going to argue or debate you, I passed the 16 hour New York State Bar exam the first time around and the 14 hour Pennsylvania Bar exam the same way, I have my doctoral degree from St. John's University Law School and my post doctoral degree from Villanova U. Law School's Graduate division; I proved everything I wanted to prove - to myself; I have nothing to prove to anyone
I'm just saying if you want to get the most out of your studies, keep an open mind, question things, don't blindly believe what someone tells you is the answer, question it - why?
John F. Kennedy once said in a speech, "Some people see.... and ask, Why? I see ..........and say, Why Not?"
