Business Law question about employment?

Postby chansomps » Wed Dec 21, 2011 6:52 am

Waterfront Hotels Corporation in Boston offers a job to Carol, who lives in Denver. Carol orally agrees to work for Waterfront for two years. She moves her family to Boston and begins work. Three months later, she is fired for no stated cause. She files a suit against the employer for reinstatement or pay. Waterfront pleads the lack of a written contract. In whose favor is the court likely to rule, and why?

The court is likely to rule in favor of Waterfront Hotels Corporation, because of the lack of a written contract to support Carol's suit.
