Executive Employment Agreement - Manhattan Associates Inc. and Ramesh Srinivasan

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.

hire by Executive and owned by Company. To the extent that any Work Product may
not by operation of law be considered work made for hire or if ownership of all
rights therein will not vest exclusively in Company, Executive assigns to

Company (or such third party) owns all worldwide copyrights, trade secret
rights, confidential information rights, and all other property rights therein.

                  (b)      Company's disclosure of the Proprietary Information
to Executive does not confer upon Executive any license, interest or rights in
or to the Proprietary Information. Except in the performance of services for
Company, Executive will hold in confidence and will not, without Company's prior
written consent, use, reproduce, distribute, transmit, reverse engineer,
decompile, disassemble, or transfer, directly or indirectly, in any form, or for
any purpose, any Proprietary Information communicated or made available by
Company to or received by Executive. Executive agrees to notify Company
immediately if he discovers any unauthorized use or disclosure of the
Proprietary Information.

         6.       Non-Solicitation.

                  A.       Customers. The relationships made or enhanced during
Executive's employment with Company belong to Company. During Executive's
employment and the one year period beginning immediately upon the termination of
Executive's employment with Company for any reason (the "One Year Limitation
Period"), Executive will not, without Company's prior written consent, contact,
solicit or attempt to solicit, on his own or another's behalf, any Customer with

a view of offering, selling or licensing any program, product or service that is
competitive with the Company Business.

                  B.       Employees/Independent Contractors. During Executive's
employment and the One Year Limitation Period, Executive will not, without
Company's prior written consent, call upon, solicit, recruit, or assist others
in calling upon, soliciting or recruiting any person who is or was an employee
of Company during the One Year Restrictive Period.

         7.       Acknowledgments. The parties hereto agree that: (i) the
restrictions contained in this Agreement are fair and reasonable in that they
are reasonably required for the protection of Company; (ii) by having access to
information concerning employees and customers of Company, Executive shall
obtain a competitive advantage as to such parties; (iii) the covenants and
agreements of Executive contained in this Agreement are reasonably necessary to
protect the interests of Company in whose favor said covenants and agreements
are imposed in light of the nature of Company's business and the involvement of
Executive in such business; (iv) the restrictions imposed by this Agreement are
not greater than are necessary for the protection of Company in light of the
substantial harm that Company will suffer should Executive breach any of the
provisions of said covenants or agreements and (v) the covenants and agreements
of Executive contained in this Agreement form material consideration for this

         8.       Remedy for Breach. Executive agrees that the remedies at law
of Company for any actual or threatened breach by Executive of the covenants
contained in Sections 4 through 7 of this Agreement would be inadequate and that
Company shall be entitled to specific performance of the covenants in such
paragraphs or injunctive relief against activities in violation of such
paragraphs, or both, by temporary or permanent injunction or other appropriate
judicial remedy, writ or order, in addition to any damages and legal expenses
(including attorney's fees) which Company may be legally entitled to recover.
Executive acknowledges and agrees that the covenants contained in Sections 4
through 7 of this Agreement shall be construed as agreements independent of any
other provision of this or any other agreement between the parties hereto, and
that the existence of any claim or cause of action by Executive against Company,
whether predicated upon this or any other agreement, shall not constitute a
defense to the enforcement by Company of said covenants.

         9.       No Prior Agreements. Executive hereby represents and warrants
to Company that the execution of this Agreement by Executive and Executive's
employment by Company and the performance of Executive's duties hereunder shall
not violate or be a breach of any agreement with a former employer, client or
any other person or entity.


         10.      Assignment; Binding Effect. Executive understands that
Executive has been selected for employment by Company on the basis of
Executive's personal qualifications, experience and skills. Executive agrees,
therefore, that Executive cannot assign all or any portion of Executive's
performance under this Agreement. Subject to the preceding two (2) sentences and
the express provisions of Section 14 below, this Agreement shall be binding
upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties hereto and their
respective heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns. The rights and
obligations of Company hereunder shall be available to any affiliate of Company
or to a successor in interest of Company, including a successor established for
the purpose of converting Company to a corporation.

         11.      Complete Agreement. This Agreement is not a promise of future
employment. Executive has no oral representations, understandings or agreements
with Company or any of its officers, directors or representatives covering the
same subject matter as this Agreement. This Agreement hereby supersedes any
other prior employment agreements or understandings, written or oral, between
Company and Executive. This written Agreement may not be later modified, except
by a further writing signed by a duly authorized officer of Company and
Executive, and no term of this Agreement may be waived except by writing signed
by the party waiving the benefit of such term.
