MemoTo:[email protected]From:[email protected]cc:[email protected]Date:Re:Interoffice MemorandumDear Supervising Attorney,I have looked through the emails from Ms. Hernandez and Ms. Washington and I have enclosedmy thoughts on this contract.1.On Wednesday, August 22,2012, Ms. Hernandez wrote Ms. Washington via email statingshe wanted to offer her a position as a tutor for her four children. The start date wouldbegin September 1, 2012. Ms. Hernandez offered Ms. Washington room and board thatwould include a salary of $42,000 annually, including insurance and benefits. She statedthere would be a 3-month probationary period and after would begin a 1-year contractterm. She asked if the terms were agreed upon to respond via email, immediately. Ms.Washington responded August 23, 2012, stating that she wanted the following added tothe contract: resolve all disputes by mediation before arbitration. She also wants the
opportunity to terminate the contract during the first year with a four weeks’ notice. Inaddition, Ms. Washington wants an automatic 10% increase in compensation after thefirst 6 months and two weeks paid vacation. Again, on August 23, 2012, Ms. Hernandezresponded stating, “I’m sure your terms are agreeable. Plan to arrive by August 28 toprepare for the upcoming school year.2.While most people do not think a contract can be done via email, they would be wrong.A contract is merely an agreement between multiple parties concerning an exchange ofitems of value, and the physical form of the contract is not so important. A contract couldbe written on a napkin and still be valid, if the terms are stated clearly and agreed up. Asin this email, both parties stated their stipulations and both agreed to the terms, makingthis communication a valid contract. I do not see any defenses as to why this contractcould be seen as voidable. Both parties were of age and of clear mind when agreeing tothe contract.
