Loffa v. Intel Corp
In Loffa v. Intel Corp., 153 Ariz. 539, 738 P.2d 1146 (App. 1987), the employee signed a one-page form entitled "Employee Agreement" that contained a statement in paragraph five that read, in part, "This Agreement . . . does not in any way restrict my right or the right of INTEL to terminate my employment . . . ." 153 Ariz. at 541, 738 P.2d at 1148.
The Court held that this language did not prevent the disciplinary procedures referenced in other materials given to new employees from being considered part of the employment agreement and ruled that the trial court properly denied Intel's motions for summary judgment, directed verdict and judgment notwithstanding the verdict. Id. at 543-46, 738 P.2d at 1150-53.
