Background:  GC owners recognize the importance of effective recruitment and hiring.  They feel competent about recruiting and hiring new GC management but want to hire an expert to recruit and hire employees to develop and manage their website, internal computer systems, and IT support.

They agree to hire a recognized expert in this area, George Tacy, to act as GC’s agent in hiring website/computer/IT employees.  The owners want to give full authority to Tacy to direct every aspect of recruitment and hiring of these employees, from the initial recruitment of applicants to the final hiring process.

The GC owners want to ensure that their agreement with Tacy will be valid and include all important terms.  They have requested a meeting with TLG to discuss agency agreements.

Winnie and Ralph have asked you to join the meeting and respond to some of the GC owners’ questions about agency law.

1.  Analyze and explain the rights of GC under the agreement with Tacy.

2.  Analyze and explain the rights of Tacy under the agreement with GC.

3.  Analyze and explain two (2) potential liabilities GC could face under the agency agreement with Tacy.
