What is the name of your state? Illinois
I was recently recruited away from a good job with promises of equity options, etc., with a small privately owned company. I took the job without the written contract being finalized and was continually told it should be ready soon. I never got the contract and in less than three months was terminated, with an offer of one month severance pay. The reason was that I was not a "good fit" even though I hit my sales goals. The Chief Marketing Officer, who recruited me to the organization was also terminated because he was not a "good fit." It's obvious to us they just wanted to cut salary and they weren't committed to the growth plan they used to recruit both of us. Since there was an implied contract, and I had little or no good faith opportunity to perform my duties, do I have a case?
