Mike,

I depends on the state laws.  Here in Arizona an Engineer is permitted to 
seal only work performed by the registrant or by a *bona fide employee of the 
registrant.*  To do otherwise jeopardizes your license and your bank 
account.  A review of disciplinary actions taken by the Arizona Board of 
Technical Registration (www.btr.az.state.us) shows that they are not hesitant 
in enforcing that law.
