TURNIP PLAZA REPORT2Turnip Plaza ReportMark Piper, a tour guide with Turnip Plaza, was promised a raise and a two-year contract by Turnip Plaza’s manager, Edward Griffin. However, before the contract could be executed, Mr. Piper was dismissed due to restructuring over liability concerns surrounding the tours. Colossal is concerned Mr. Piper will bring legal action to the company over the verbal promise.Legal TheoriesMr. Piper may try to legally enforce the verbal contract via “Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and the common law. Depending on the subject matter of the contract, such as if the contract involves the purchase of tangible personal property ("goods") or the hiring of an individual for employment ("services"), one will look to specific sources of law to determine whether the legal promise is enforceable. Contracts for the sale of goods are governed by Article2 of the UCC. Most contracts that are not for the sale of goods—such as contracts for employment, real property, insurance, and so forth—are governed by the common law…” (Contract Formation and Execution, 2020). This contract was for employment and not for goods, therefore UCC will not apply.
