Sample Business Contracts

Offer Letter - Jive Software Inc. and Oudi Antebi

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.

Your base compensation will be $16,666.67 per month, which is equal to $200,000 annually, less payroll deductions and all required withholdings. In addition, you are eligible for a bonus up to $100,000 per year which will be paid semi-annually based on company performance (70%) and individual MBOs (30%). New employees will be paid on a pro rata basis for their first payout and must work a minimum of 60 days before the payout dates of January 1 and July 1 to be eligible. A change to the MBO executive plan, beginning January 1, 2012 the payout will occur annually once all financials are finalized and approved by the Board. For 2012, annual payout is planned for Q1'13. The compensation committee of the Board reserves the right to modify and/or change the metrics of the executive bonus plan and the total compensation programs. Subject to the approval of the compensation committee, you will receive all benefits commensurate with other similarly situated U.S. based members of the executive team, including those added in the future. Any such benefits added in the future will be also conveyed to you (i.e. severance, additional paid time off, etc.). With respect to any reference to "anniversary date" or "hiring date" for the purpose of calculating any benefits based on length of employment (i.e. PTO), the date we shall use will be September 29, 2009 (consistent with your prior offer letter from OffiSync Corporation). In addition, to assist you with your move to California you will receive up to $50,000 in relocation allowance, details to be provided to you in a separate document.

All of your responsibilities and actions will at all times be subject to the appropriate approval of the CEO and the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board"), and you will be reporting directly to Tony Zingale, CEO. Unless you are required to travel on behalf of the Company, you will work at our Palo Alto office. The Company may, in its discretion, change your position, duties, and work location from time to time as it deems necessary, although all efforts will be made to consult with you first.

You will be paid semi-monthly and you will be eligible for the standard Company benefits, which currently includes the following: medical insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, PTO, 401(k), and paid holidays. The standard Company benefits offerings may, at the Company's discretion, be changed from time to time. Details about the current benefit plans are available for your review.
