Community Design Corporation v. Antonell

District Court of Appeal of Florida
459 So.2d 343 (1984)


Community Design Corporation (CDC) (defendant) hired Joseph Antonell (Antonell) (plaintiff) to draft architectural drawings. CDC promised to pay any employee who remained on staff until Christmas a bonus if the drawings were completed by then. Antonell’s supervisor was charged with determining the amount of the bonus. The supervisor also promised Antonell that he would receive paid vacation time if the drawings were completed by Christmas. Antonell worked overtime to complete the drawings and remained employed. The drawings were later amended. By February of the following year, Antonell had not received the promised vacation, the supervisor had yet to recommend a bonus amount, and therefore CDC had not paid it. Antonell sued CDC for breach of contract. The jury found in favor of Antonell, and CDC appealed.
