D. This law, that an agent who hired workers for an employer does not transgress bal talin (“Do not withhold…”), applies to an ordinary agent. But a person who was appointed as a guardian over someone’s property — even if it is well-known that the merchandise etc. is not his own — is the one responsible to pay the workers. Therefore, if he delays paying them, he transgresses bal talin. Similarly, a married woman who hires workers to do a job in the home, is obligated to pay the workers that very day, in order to avoid transgressing bal talin.
