P suing for wrongful termination.  P was an executive who was thought to be an at will employee.  P brings suit under Contract and tort and he won under contract

Court held that there was an implied contract by looking at agency law.  Even a sole proprietorship can have an implied contract which prohibits at will termination.  There was a termination guide stating certain reasons to be fired, and therefore there was an implied contract.  The general rule is that an employer in a sole prop. May discharge an employee at will, however, there is a limitation on this right when there is evidence of an implied contract.
