Compensation claim for defective goods?

We have purchased some materials from a company and due to delay from the client our works got delayed. When we started using the materials we found them defective. When we notified the company regarding the defect, the supplier rejected our claim. Is there any provision in law that supports the supplier’s defence? Can we claim for compensation for defects in goods as per the law?

Compensating for damage caused by employee?

As per law, is the company liable for every act of the employees? Last month, we received a legal notice from lawyer stating that the company has to compensate for the damage caused by the employee. On enquiry, we found that it is something which is beyond the scope of employment and is related to personal issues of the employee. We have responded to the letter refusing to entertain such matters as it is not related to his employment. Now he has filed a civil case in the court claiming compensation from the company? Being the employer, are we liable for the same?
