Parker & Co., located in New Orleans, offered Donna, a resident of Atlanta, a job as an accountant at a salary of $70,000 a year. Donna accepted. Donna then resigned from her $50,000 job in Atlanta, gave notice on her apartment, spent $1,200 on a special wardrobe, bought a new car, made a $800 deposit on an apartment in New Orleans, and gave her dog to a retirement home (the apartment in New Orleans didn’t allow pets). Donna then packed up her car and drove to New Orleans. When she was within 50 miles of New Orleans, Parker sent Donna a text that said “We won’t be able to employ you after all. Our apologies.”
