Chapter 9 questions 1, 4, 5


  1. Explain from where a corporation derives its authority.

The authority of a corporation is expressed in the law under which the corporation is chartered and in the corporation’s articles of incorporation. The existence of this authority creates certain duties and liabilities for governing bodies and their individual members. Members of the governing body of an organization have both express and implied corporate authority.


  1. Describe corporate ethics, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and corporate authority.

Corporate ethics describes the ethics of an organization and how it responds to internal or external circumstances affecting the organization’s mission and values. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 was enacted to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures. The act requires top executives of public corporations to vouch for the financial reports of their companies and encourages self-regulation. Express corporate authority is delegated by statute. Implied corporate authority is invoked in cases in which authority not specifically granted in the articles of incorporation is required to carry out its purpose. Ultra vires acts are those in which a governing body acts beyond its expressed or implied scope of authority.


  1. Explain the terms of corporate negligence, respondent superior, and independent contractor.

Corporate Negligence: A corporation itself owes duties to the general public and to its patients. Duties arise from statutes, regulations, principles of law developed by the courts, and the internal operating rules of the organization. A corporation is treated no differently than an individual. If a corporation has a duty and fails in the exercise of that duty, it has the same liability to the injured party as an individual would have.

Respondent superior (vicarious liability): An employer can be held responsible for the acts of its employees.

Independent contractor relationship is one in which the principle has no right of control over the way in which the agent’s work is to be performed.
