Sample Business Contracts

Employment Agreement - Pittston Co. and David L. Marshall

Employment Forms

  • Employment Agreement. Employers can customize an employment agreement that states the salary, benefits, working hours and other important provisions for their new or existing employee.
  • Consulting Agreement. Answer simple questions to build a contract with a consultant. Specify the services rendered, when payment is due, as well as IP rights.
  • Commission Agreement. Employers who compensate their sales employees based on commissions can prepare an agreement to reduce misunderstandings by specifying the base salary and how commissions are calculated.
  • Executive Employment Agreement. Companies may offer their business executives a contract that is different from the one provided to their regular employees. Executive employment agreements may be more complex because the compensation structure may include a combination of salary and commissions, provide for bonuses based on sales, stock or other financial targets, and include non-compete, confidentiality and severance provisions.
  • Sales Representative Contract. Independent sales representatives offer companies the potential to increase the sale of products or services without the burden of increasing headcount. Both parties should understand how commissions are calculated, when commissions will be paid, as well as how the representative will treat confidential information from the company and whether the representative may also sell a competing line of products or services.

                                    EXHIBIT E

                      Special Rules Applicable to Employees
                          of Paramont Coal Corporation

               This Exhibit E describes special provisions applicable to
Employees of Paramont Coal Corporation. To the extent the provisions in this
Exhibit E are inconsistent with the terms contained in the remainder of the
Plan, the provisions contained in this Exhibit E will take precedence.

I.      Merger of Plans

               As of April 1, 1996 (the "Merger Date"), the Production Incentive
Plan of Paramont Coal Corporation ("Prior Plan") will be merged into the Plan
and the Prior Plan will be terminated. As of the Merger Date, the account
balances of each Employee who was a participant in the Prior Plan will be
allocated to the T. Rowe Price Stable Value Fund and will be transferred to such
Fund as soon as practicable thereafter. Subsequent to the initial transfer of
account balances to the T. Rowe Price Stable Value Fund, Employees with
transferred account balances may elect to allocate such balances to other Funds
in accordance with Article V of the Plan. Any Employee with an account balance
under the Prior Plan shall become a Participant in this Plan, even if he does
not file an application to have Basic Contributions made on his behalf.


II.     Participation

               As of April 1, 1995, each Employee of Paramont Coal Corporation
became eligible to participate in the Plan with respect to future Basic
Contributions as of or following the date on which he satisfied the requirements
contained in Section 2.02 of the Plan, determined as if Paramont Coal
Corporation had been a Component Member since the Employee's date of hire.

III.    Minimum Vested Percentage

               As of the Merger Date, Employees who were participants in the
Prior Plan will be fully vested in their individual account balances transferred
from the Prior Plan and in any other amounts contributed to such Employees'
accounts under the Plan.

IV.     Loans

               As of the Merger Date, all loans granted under Section 6.03 of
the Prior Plan which remain outstanding will be transferred to the Plan, and
each Employee with an outstanding loan under the Prior Plan will be required to
continue repayment of the loan in accordance with the repayment provisions
agreed to at the time the loan was granted.
