Vander Veur v. Groove Entertainment Technologies, 2018 UT App 148 (Aug. 9, 2018)

Aug 9, 2018

In an employment suit involving a dispute over unpaid commission, the court of appeals held that in narrow circumstances, a company could breach the implied warranty of good faith and fair dealing, even in an at-will employment relationship.  Specifically, when an employee and employer enter into a separate compensation agreement, the employer cannot terminate the employment relationship in bad faith to avoid paying the compensation that the employee has a justified expectation to receive.
