Money Matters - Special Employee Request
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: The general rule for such situations is, how much authority does the employee have? In many situations employers delegate authority to their employees to make certain decisions regarding the business, such as extending credit, giving reductions, allowing for exchange or return of purchases and so on. If the employee has the authority to so do, you may make such requests, but if the employee has no such authority the permission of the employee is not sufficient.

Whether the employee has such authority will depend on several factors, such as the nature of the business, the position of the employee etc.

When in doubt, ask the manager or owner!
