When Corey Loghry (plaintiff) was procured to work for Unicover Corporation (Unicover) (defendant), she signed a business contract disclaimer expressing that her employment could be ended with or without cause and with or without notice whenever. The Unicover representative handbook contained a similar disclaimer. The business contract disclaimer likewise gave that no individual other than the organization's director could enter any understanding for work for any predefined timeframe or alter the terms of Loghry's employment. Brian Hilt, a Unicover corporate officer who was not the president, was researching whether Loghry's supervisor had given proprietary data to a competitor of Unicover. Hilt requested that Loghry turn over Loghry's records to him, and Hilt guaranteed Loghry that she would not lose her employment if she coordinated. Loghry turned over the records, yet she was terminated for lack of dedication to her manager in spite of Hilt's guarantee of job security. Loghry sued Unicover for breach of her employment contract. The district court held that Loghry was an at-will worker, and the Supreme Court of Wyoming affirmed on appeal. Loghry brought another action against Unicover for promissory estoppel, in addition to other things. The district court entered summary judgment for Unicover, finding that the employment contract disclaimer that Loghry signed defeated her promissory estoppel claim. Loghry appealed.
