Assignment 5: Contract Consideration and the Employer/Employee Relationship Instructions Review the cases below and answer the questions:
- Caley v. Gulf stream Aero. Corp., 428 F.3d 1359 (11th Cir. Ga. 2005)
- Santos v. Gen. Dynamics Aviation Servs. Corp., 9984 So. 2d 658 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2008)
In both cases the appellate court deferred an employee’s right to a jury trial until after completion of the employer’s mandatory ADR complaint resolution process even though there was no apparent agreement to this by the employees. In regard to consideration and whether a contract was actually formed, explain precisely why the courts ruled as they did and what might have happened to the employer/employee relationship if the decision had gone the other way in favor of the employees.
