Express authority means an agent has actually been told by contract that he or she may act on behalf of a principal. (the company for whom they work) So, for an example, XYZ insurer specifically authorizes an agent to bind certain risks.

What is an example of apparent authority? Apparent authority may arise, for example, bygiving someone who has no authority to contract materials, stationery, forms, a truck with a company logo, or letting him work out of the company office.

Who has authority to act for another? A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document giving one person, the agent or attorney-in-fact the power to act for another person, the principal. The agent can have broad legal authority or limited authority to make decisions about the principal's property, finances or medicalcare.

How does implied authority arise? Implied authority is created in a situation where the authority to_act on behalf of someone else is implied by the actions of the person. Implied authority is different from actual authority and both are part of the principle of agency.
