JURI 530 D RAFT A NNOTATED L ETTER A GREEMENT I NSTRUCTIONS The Contract Review and Annotation assignment provided an opportunity for you to see what a contract looks like, think about the legal rules of contract law at work in an agreement, and annotate an existing contract to consider its strengths and weaknesses. The Draft Annotated Letter Agreement gives you a chance to apply your knowledge of contract law and legal drafting in a creative process: drafting a letter agreement and an accompanying office memo explaining the content of the letter agreement. Assume you work for an employer and have been asked to draft a letter describing the terms of a proposed employment agreement on behalf of an employer to a new prospective employee. The letter will take the form of a standard professional letter, include an initial paragraph describing the nature of the proposed agreement, and then include numbered paragraphs, each identifying the distinct terms of an employment agreement between the employer and the employee based on the fact pattern below. At the conclusion of the letter, you must prepare a signature line for a representative of your employer, followed by a signature line for the prospective employee to sign. The rest of the content of the agreement is up to you, but do your best to anticipate all of the legal issues that need to be addressed, draft your agreement for clarity and consistency, and ensure the agreement is well-organized. The letter agreement must address the following topics, but may address more, if you elect to: 1. The term of the agreement 2. A description of the responsibilities of the employee 3. A description of the responsibilities of the employer 4. A provision describing actions that will constitute a default under the agreement 5. Liquidated damages 6. Payment of weekly wages 7.
