Those are the questions posed to District Court Judge Susan Davis Wigenton in a case brought by Gershwain Sprauve.
Sprauve seemed to have everything going his way at The West Indian Company Limited (“WICO”). He started working for them as the Manager of Mall Operations and was soon after appointed to be WICO’s Corporate Secretary. Sprauve always received exemplary performance reviews, salary raises, and cash bonuses due for his performance. Sprauve was recommended for President and CEO, and was the Acting President when the position became open. The Board of Directors of WICO unanimously accepted his application for the top spot, and discussed a six-month transition period for Sprauve. They told him that they planned to have a draft contract to him shortly.
