- I represented a Texas personnell agency that introduced a Candidate to an an Alabama State University Hospital for an interview. The Hospital offered the job to the Candidate. She was not able to accept. Months later, the Candidate appeared again, but through a different agency. On her Second Interview the Candidate was offered the job again. She accepted the job this time. Our client learned this through communications and sent a demand letter for payment of the personnell fee. The Hospital denied the demand for 2 reasons: 1) they claimed governmental immunity; and 2) that there was no contract. We filed a claim with the State of Alabama and had the administrative hearing in Alabama. We argued and presented evidence claiming that the agreement consisted of emails, attachments and directions for placement by the Hospital. The State of Alabama agreed and our client was awarded their entire personnell placement fee., 2012
