Implied Authority

Definition - What does Implied Authority mean?

Implied authority is referred to the authority of an agent or a business working on behalf of some another individual or business entity. The person with implied authority is expected to carry out the duties in the best interest of the entity represented.

Justipedia explains Implied Authority

Implied authority is not transferred in the form of a written document, but it is assumed that the agent or business working on someone’s behalf has it and will use it to carry out the business. For example, a person wearing a uniform or badge of a company has implied authority as the customers will assume that a person has some sort of authorization on company’s behalf.
