the story of it is this. The Contract of service was done last June 2012 and was signed by our director then. the contract has a effectivity date of July 9, 2012 - December 31, 2012. We followed the procedure prescribed by the Agency for legality issues. July 2, 2012, our boss died. the contracts was already submitted to our legal service for review prior to the date of death. there are minor corrections to be done on the contract but as respect to our late boss, the legal service accepted our plea to have the corrections done with correction fluid and have our Administrative Officer initialed. The Legal service accepted the contracts with corrections initialed and the other offices accepted it and signed on the contract. Our accounting processed the payroll and we have the contract notarized.
My office-mate last November 2012 out of nowhere is questioning the legality of the contract since our director, signing authority is already dead.
Now, im inquiring if the contracts are still valid and legal even if our director died? Do we have a specific law that explains the legality or illegality of it?
