Wayne Goodrich claims Steve Jobs promised him a job for life.
Goodrich is suing Apple on claims that the iPhone maker fired him in spite of a verbal contract with the company's departed chief executive.
The axed employee was an executive producer for Apple presentations. Goodrich can even be seen on YouTube leading the iPhone 4S keynote from last year. He reportedly considered himself a "confidant, sounding board and close adviser" to Jobs.
Goodrich lost his job in December of last year for "business reasons". He had been with the company since 1998 and was reportedly given Jobs' promise in a one-on-one meeting with the late Apple founder.
"This express promise by Steve Jobs was consistent with a practice that Steve Jobs had, acting on behalf of defendant Apple, of promising job security to certain key employees who worked directly with him for many years," Goodrich said in the complaint, according to Bloomberg.
Goodrich is reportedly seeking compensation in the form of Apple stock he lost when he was canned. With the insanely successful way the stock is moving it's no wonder Goodrich chose that route for compensation.
The Goodrich suit marks another in a long line of court cases for Apple. The iPhone maker has been embroiled in numerous global patent litigations for what seems like forever.
