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.

By: /s/ Mark Adams --------------------------------- Its: President & CEO -------------------------------- <PAGE> Final Plan IntraLinks, Inc. 5/23/97 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Management Performance Incentives -- Cash Bonus Plan In order to attract and retain the best available talent and to encourage the highest level of performance to serve the best interests of IntraLinks and its shareholders, the Board has approved an annual cash bonus plan for its employees (the "Bonus Plan"). Administration The Bonus Plan will be administered by a three-member Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Subject to provisions of the IntraLinks Stockholders' Agreement and consistent with the Company's primary mission and business goals, the Committee in its discretion shall have plenary authority to: o determine the total amount of cash bonus awards ("Bonus Pool") to be granted to all employees on an annual basis; o determine all the persons to whom, and the time or times at which, individual awards shall be granted and paid ("Individual Awards"); and o interpret the Bonus Plan and prescribe, amend and rescind all policy, rules and regulations relating thereto. Bonus Pool The size of the annual Bonus Pool will be based upon the achievement of growth in annual revenues and the annual growth in EBIT (Earnings Before Interest and Taxes). In principle, the size of the Bonus Pool will be calculated based on the formula: o 5%-10% of the increase in annual revenues, plus o 5%-10% of the increase in EBIT profit(1). The decision on whether to award as a Bonus Pool of 5% or 10% of the annual increase in revenue and/or EBIT growth, or a percentage in between 5% and 10%, will be made by the Committee based in part on subjective considerations, including but not limited to the relationship between actual results and the Company's business and financial plans, and the business outlook for the coming year. Bonus Pool amounts will be accrued annually but not paid out to individuals until and unless the Company has positive annual EBIT profits. Accrued Individual Awards will be carried forward and will be paid in cash only at such time and to such extent as permitted by a positive EBIT result(s) for the prior calendar year(s). The total accrued Bonus Pool amount paid out in any one year will be limited to a maximum of 40% of the Company's EBIT profit for that same year. ---------- 1 A decrease in EBIT Loss as considered to be an increase in EBIT Profit. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 1 <PAGE> Final Plan IntraLinks, Inc. 5/23/97 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Individual Awards Individual Awards in aggregate will not exceed the size of the Bonus Pool and Preliminary Allocations will be determined by the Committee annually in advance of the year to which they apply. The Bonus Plan will commence on January 1, 1998. The allocation of the Bonus Pool to individual employees will change from year to year, based upon the Committee's quantitative and qualitative assessment of the past and prospective performance of each individual - in contributing to the Company's success, and based upon the relative importance of each person's job duties. There is no requirement that the entire Bonus Pool must be awarded to individuals. Final determination of the size of the Bonus Pool and the Final Allocation of the Bonus Pool to individuals will be made by the Committee in February of the year following the calendar year to which the Bonus Pool applies. At the same time, the Committee will make a Preliminary Allocation of the Bonus Pool to individuals for the forthcoming year. Individuals subject to the Preliminary Allocation of Individual Awards who are no longer employed by the Company at the time of the Final Allocation - will not receive a final Individual Award for that year, unless the Committee should decide otherwise. Once an Individual Award is Final, the accrued Individual Award vests immediately and will be paid in cash, pro rata to other Individual Awards, at the same time as other Individual Awards are paid in cash, whether or not the recipient at that time still is employed by the Company. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 2 <PAGE> COPY INTRALINKS, INC. 1372 Broadway New York, New York 10018-6106 December 15, 1997 John Muldoon 9 Vliet Drive Belle Mead, NJ 08502 Dear John: Reference is made to that certain Employment Agreement dated as of July 7, 1997 (the "Agreement") by and between IntraLinks, Inc.
