Sample Business Contracts

Employment Agreement - McAfee Inc. and Christopher Bolin

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.

     1. Duties and Scope of Employment.
          (a) Positions; Employment Commencement Date; Duties. Executive's employment with the Company commenced April 7, 1997 (the "Employment Commencement Date"). As of the date of this Agreement, the Company employs Executive as Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of the Company for the McAfee Engineering Department reporting into the President of the Company (the "President"). The period of Executive's employment hereunder is referred to herein as the "Employment Term." During the Employment Term, Executive shall render such business and professional services in the] performance of his/her duties that are consistent with Executive's position within the Company, as shall reasonably be assigned to him/her by the Chief Executive Officer of the Company (the "CEO") and or the President.
          (b) Obligations. During the Employment Term, Executive shall devote his/her full business efforts and time to the Company. Executive agrees, during the Employment Term, not to actively engage in any other employment, occupation or consulting activity for any direct or indirect remuneration without the prior approval of the CEO; provided, however, that Executive may serve in any capacity (i) with any civic, educational or charitable organization, or (ii) as a member of corporate boards of directors or committees of another corporation so long as such organization does not compete with the Company if Executive obtains the prior written approval of the CEO with respect to serving in such capacity, which may be withheld in the sole discretion of the CEO. The term "Board" means the Board of Directors of the Company.
     2. Employee Benefits. During the Employment Term, Executive shall be eligible to participate in the employee and fringe benefit plans maintained by the Company (as such plans are amended from time to time) that are applicable to other management personnel serving at levels no higher than Executive to the full extent provided for under those plans.
     3. At-Will Employment. Executive and the Company agree and acknowledge that Executive's employment with the Company constitutes "at-will" employment. Subject to the Company's obligation to provide severance benefits as specified herein, Executive and the Company agree that this employment relationship may be terminated at any time, upon written notice to the other party, with or without good cause or for any or no cause, at the option of either the Company or Executive.
     4. Compensation.
          (a) Base Salary. During the Employment Term, the Company shall pay the Executive as compensation for his/her services a base salary at the annualized rate of Three


Hundred Fifty Thousand ($350,000.00). Such base salary shall be paid periodically in accordance with normal Company payroll practices and subject to the usual, required withholding. The Company will review (in accordance with the policies set by the Compensation Committee of the Board) Executive's base salary at least once annually starting in January 2005 and, if it deems it appropriate, modify the base salary. Executive's annualized base salary, as modified as provided herein, shall be referred to as his/her "Base Salary."
          (b) Bonuses. Executive shall be eligible to participate in the executive quarterly incentive bonus program (as it may be amended from time to time), with milestones based in part on Company performance and/or in part on Executive's individual performance Executive's quarterly target incentive is 42.857% of Base Salary for such quarter (the "Target Bonus"). The payment of all or any portion of the Target Bonus for any calendar quarter shall depend on whether the relevant goals are met (or, in the case of a Target Bonus that has tiered goals, which, if any, tier or tiers of goals are met).
          (c) Severance.
               (i) Termination For Any Reason.

For illustration purposes only, if Executive's Target Bonus is $1,000, and Executive is terminated on May 15, and Executive met sufficient goals to receive a $600 Target Bonus, then his/her actual bonus for the year of termination would be $297 ($600 x (45/91)).
