Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you today.
You can sue the company for fraud and for right of personality.
However, rather than trying to negotiate this one on your own, I would strongly suggest that you retain a lawyer to represent you on this. I know that customers do not come to our forum to be told "go hire a lawyer" but I recommend this here because what concerns me most about your situation is that your name and license number is ***** used to sign off on contract work that you have not actually inspected.
You want to ensure that your license is protected in whatever resolution that you reach with both your employer and their customer.
(Your proposal that you get paid a consulting fee for each signature would seem reasonable on the surface, but it also could be construed as permitting the use by your employer to do what they did. An attorney can help you navigate this - and determine whether (and how) notification needs to be made to the employer's client as well in order to ensure that your license does not become affected).
Your employer should compensate you for these costs - this conduct is intentional on their part, and an attorney should be able to secure a damage claim against them to cover the cost of dealing with this.
