I worked for 6 years in a Sept. to June contract. The last 2.5 years I was a Team Leader with 45+ staff under my supervision. I never worried about being called back. My performance appraisals were always top scoring. During my last appraisal, my supervisor made notes that we would make Sept. to Dec. goals for certain areas, and that in one area I asked to get more advanced training, she wrote we would work on this together in Sept. She also said on several occasions that "When you come back in Sept., we will....." On one occasion she said she would see if the budget allowed me to come back a month early so I could be part of the hiring process for new staff. She even wrote this on my performance appraisal. Yet they gave the contract to someone else. I told possible employers during the summer months that I would be going back to my previous employer and would not be able to work for them.
Probably not, as there was a written contract 6 years in a row and you knew there was no actual contract because there was a bidding process. However feel free to contact an employment attorney to discuss. Good Luck,
