AUSTRALIAN CONTRACT EMPLOYMENT LAW 2 Australian Contract Employment Law The basic understanding is that New Age Promotions (NAP) had a set of promises that it had made to several parties. In the case of Jane, Jerry and Sam, NAP had undertaken to give free tickets to the first ten people that would turn in 3 Apple Cider bottle tops so that they could attend the live performance of the ‘Silver Desk’ band and after that get to have dinner with them. The decision for NAP to withdraw competition due as advised by its legal department due to the legal complexities had a number of implications. Naturally, for a contract to be binding it must consist of two or more parties entering into an agreement (Pittard & Naughton, 2014). This means that there has to be an offer by one party and an acceptance by the other party. In this case, the offer was the communication by NAP to offer tickets to the concert and people responded by performing the conditions that had been set forth by NAP. Here, it is implicit that Jane showed her commitment of the offer by turning up at NAP’s offices with the 3 bottle tops. Jane Carlill’s probability of winning a lawsuit against NAP is very high since she had met the provided conditions. The offer was valid on the grounds that an offer can be made to the world and as such, this not just another sales puff since the NAP’s manager made an official announcement stating that to demonstrate that their sincerity, they had secured tickets $3,000. The language used in this case as well was not vague to be enforced and furthermore, NAP went ahead to confirm her as a winner as a result of her compliance with the minimum requirements. There is also a special consideration of the inconvenience caused to Jane as a result of her determination to get the bottle tops from the store before driving all the way to the meet Sally, the receptionist at NAP. Therefore, Jane has a strong case and so she should a launch a case by claiming that there was a contract between her and NAP, based on the manager’s

She could further argue that the advertisement by itself was an offer which was meant to be heard over the radio and acted upon. The advertisement was generally made to the public, it turned into a contract the moment Jane performed the specified actions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
