1. Consider the given scenario. Brett, a sales representative at a store selling sports equipment, received an offer to join a competitor that promised to pay him 7.5 percent commission. When informed about this offer, his current employer verbally promised to pay Brett 10 percent commission "for the remainder of his life" subject to discharge only for dishonesty or disability. Brett accepted his current employer's offer and continued to work with  the same company.
Three years later when Brett was fired, he sued his company for breach of contract.What is the anticipated result? Give reasons for your answer.

2.  number of overweight Americans filed a class action suit for deceptive trade practices and negligence against McDonald’s Corporation, the fast-food                        chain famous for its hamburgers, French fries, and chicken nuggets.                        

                            The class claimed that McDonald’s food is fatty and addictive and argued that the members of the general public have no idea how bad McDonald’s food is                            for their health. The attorneys for the class obtained copies of McDonald's food studies, which showed that the company was aware of the high fat                            content in its food but did not look any further into the possible health consequences on its customers.                        

                            Using the keywords Pelman v. McDonald’s Corp., 237 F.Supp.2d 512 (S.D.N.Y. 2003), search the Internet and read the complete case.                        

                            Analyze and discuss the following:                        

  • Can McDonald’s be held responsible for causing obesity among its customers?
  • Would proving that McDonald’s had added certain fat to its food that would make its products more addictive affect the suit? If yes, how? If no,                            why?
  • What if small amounts of fat were added to make the food addictive but the fat would not be easily detected?
  • If you were the CEO of McDonald's, how would you change your menu and marketing strategy in response to the lawsuit?
