Knowledge imputation in employment law

circle light

Austrian law generally allows for imputation or attribution of knowledge to a principal where an agent, in the course of performing that task, learns something about a third party that has legal relevance to the principal´s relationship with that third party. Employers should establish functioning reporting lines or risk knowledge being imputed to their detriment.
