1400.02000 – Employer Responsibility
The MCS principal is an agent of the District; he had both actual authority and apparent authority to engage in the unlawful conduct. “Actual authority” is that which an employer intentionally confers upon the agent, or intentionally or negligently allows the agent to believe himself or herself to possess. “Apparent authority” may be found where an employer reasonably allows employees to perceive that it has authorized the agent to engage in the conduct in question.
