KNOW YOUR OWN DOCUMENTS

The Court found an employee did not owe a duty to draw the termination clause of his employment contract to the attention of the employer.

First, the relationship between the parties did not require that the employee (who drafted the contract) draw the term to the attention to the employer (who did not read the contract before signing). Second, if the employee owed such a duty, he discharged that duty when he advised the employer to read the contract.
