Hypo with specifics changed:
Deal Memo says Employment "At Will" from 1/1/12 until 7/1/12, paid hourly with overtime at 1.5. Payment is hourly. No benefits. 6/1/2012 employer sends e-mail offering continued employment until 1/1/13 and requests confirmation. Employee accepts agreement via e-mail. Original deal memo says modification only in signed writing. Employee continues working without any write ups or disciplinary action. Employees work unpaid overtime on weekends, but lunch (meaning the food only) is paid for by employer. 10/12 Employee receives telephone call that the job is being terminated because there is 'no more work.' Only two employees are terminated "at will" under this condition, both are senior citizens. What recourse do they have? Interested in finding atty.
