Employee entered into a written contract with Employer that provided, among other things, that Employee would manage a business division for Employer in exchange for half of the division's net profits, and if the division was sold during the term of the agreement, Employee would receive half of the net sale proceeds. In January, 2010, Employee was told that a contract had been made to sell the division. In February, 2010, Employer fired Employee without prior notice. The division sale was completed in March 2010, and Employer refused to pay Employee any part of the net sale proceeds or any accrued net profits.
