Question
Ima Phool is a ultrasound technologist for Mercy Hospital. Ima was approached by Arthur Ritus, who represents a competing medical facility. Ima was offered a substantial raise to leave Mercy and work for the new company. When Ima’s boss heard about the offer, he told Ima, “If you agree to stay with us for at least five years, I promise that next year you will receive a promotion with a 15% raise and a 5-year contract.” Ima turned down Arthur’s offer and stayed with Mercy. Eight months later, Ima was dismissed due to corporate downsizing. Ima sued for breach of contract.
