408 Words2 Pages
In Boaz versus Federal Express, an employee with a lower pay grade took on the responsibilities of an employee who was let go that was 20 pay grades higher with no additional pay. She performed those additional duties for 4 years. Her employment contract included a provision that stated: “To the extent the law allows an employee to bring legal action against Federal Express Corporation, I agree to bring that complaint within the time prescribed by law or six months from the date of the event forming the basis of my lawsuit, whichever expires first” (Wright, 2013). Because she didn’t file her claim until 9 months after she stopped doing that job, Federal Express claimed that she was outside her right due to the employment agreement.
