Prev Article 27. - PROFESSIONAL CORPORATIONSNext


17-2715.Same; act not to affect professional relationships; liability of employee or shareholder of corporation, extent. The professional corporation law of Kansas shall not affect any law, duty, right or privilege arising out of or applicable to the relationship between a person rendering professional services and a person receiving those services, including, but not limited to, liability or privilege arising out of the professional services. All rights and obligations pertaining to communications made to, or information received by any qualified person, or such person's advice thereon, shall be extended to the professional corporation of which such person is a shareholder or employee, and to the corporation's officers and employees. Every individual who renders a professional service as an employee of a professional corporation or a foreign professional corporation shall be liable for any negligent or wrongful act or omission in which such individual personally participates to the same extent as if such individual rendered such service in such individual's individual capacity. An employee or shareholder of a professional corporation or a foreign professional corporation shall not be liable for the conduct, actions or omissions of other employees in which such employee or shareholder did not personally participate unless such employee or shareholder was negligent in appointing or supervising that employee. Except as provided in this section, the liability of an employee or shareholder of a professional corporation or foreign professional corporation in such employer or shareholder's capacity as such shall be no greater in any respect than that of an employee or a shareholder of a corporation organized under the Kansas general corporation code contained in K.S.A. 17-6001 et seq., and amendments thereto.
