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.

claims whatsoever by Employee or any other person, firm, or corporation. Company
shall accordingly have the sole and exclusive right to copyright or patent the
Software (as well as any and all characters, objects, sounds and music embodied
therein and Documentation thereto, or other reproductions embodying the
Software thereof, and any other material capable of copyright protection created
in connection with the Software) in Company's name, as the owner and author
thereof, and to secure any and all renewals and extensions

of such copyrights and patents. Company shall have the exclusive
worldwide right in perpetuity to manufacture, sell, distribute, lease, license,
rent and advertise the Software Products, or other reproductions (visual and
non-visual) embodying all or any portion of all Software designed and developed
by or under the direction of Employee hereunder or any derivative works thereof
or any of the sound, music, or characters derived from the Software under any
trademarks, trade names, or labels, to perform such Software Products or other

terms and conditions as Company and/or Acclaim may approve, and to permit any
other person, firm or corporation to do any or all of the foregoing, or refrain

         (b) Employee acknowledges and agrees that the success of the Company
depends, among other things, upon maintaining strict secrecy with respect to its
trade secrets and confidential information relating to the design, development
and marketing of its products and services, and other, confidential information
relating to the business of the Company, and to which trade secrets and
confidential information Employee may acquire knowledge of or have access to
during the course of his employment by the Company. (Such trade secrets and
confidential information are hereinafter referred to as "Proprietary
Information"). Employee shall use his best efforts to exercise utmost diligence,
as an individual as well as part of a working group, to protect and guard the
Proprietary Information of the Company.  Employee agrees not to disclose to any
outside party either during or after his employment, nor to use, for himself or
another, during or after his employment, without the Company's written consent,
any information of the Company obtained by him during his employment, whether
developed by him or not, which is, or is treated as, Proprietary Information by
the Company; and Employee agrees to hold all Proprietary Information in strict
confidence. The provisions of this paragraph shall continue in full force and
effect after Employee's termination of employment for whatever reason.

         (c) In the course of its business, the Company may receive confidential
disclosures of the trade secrets and confidential information of other persons
and entities. In such event, when instructed by the Company, Employee shall
receive and treat the trade secrets and confidential information of such other
persons and entities with the same obligation and degree of care as Employee
treats the Proprietary Information of the Company.

            (d)     Employee further acknowledges and agrees that the
     success of the Company also depends upon the timely receipt of
     disclosures of inventions, know-how, discoveries and developments
     usable in or relating to the business of Company (all of which
     shall hereinafter be referred to collectively as "Innovations")
     made or conceived by him in the course of employment by the
     Company, and in appropriate circumstances, his full cooperation
     in filing, maintaining and enforcing in the United States and
     foreign countries, applications for copyrights and patents, and
     patents and copyrights which may issue, covering such
     Innovations. Employee agrees to disclose and assign and does
     hereby assign to the Company or its nominee all Innovations and
     rights pertaining thereto, whether patentable or not, which,
     during the period of his employment by the Company, Employee has
     made or conceived or may hereafter make or conceive either solely
     or jointly with others and which:
                 (i)     were made using equipment, supplies,
     facilities or trade secret information of the Company, or
                 (ii) were developed at least in part on the
     Company's time, or
                 (iii) relate either to the business of the Company
     or to the Company's actual or demonstrably anticipated research
     or development, or
                 (iv) which results from any work Employee performs
     or performed for the Company.
            (e)  In order to allow the Company to claim rights in
     those Innovations which it owns or owns an interest in, Employee
     agrees that he will promptly and fully disclose in writing to the
     Company the subject matter of every Innovation made or conceived
     by Employee, either solely or jointly with others, and all
     copyrights and patent applications naming Employee as an author,
     co-author, inventor or a co-inventor during the period of his
     employment with the Company whether or not the same are required
     by this Agreement to be assigned to the Company. Upon the
     request of the Company, Employee shall make all reasonable
     efforts to provide further disclosure of the aforesaid
     Innovations in which the Company may reasonably claim ownership
     or for which the Company requires additional information in order
     to determine its ownership rights. The Company shall maintain
     all disclosures made hereunder of Innovations owned by Employee
     in confidence.



                 (f)     For the purpose of this Agreement, an Innovation
          shall be deemed to have been made during the period of Employee's
          employment if during such period the Innovation was conceived,
          first actually reduced to practice or otherwise put in a tangible
          form and Employee agrees that any patent application or copyright
          application filed within 4 months after termination of Employee's
          employment shall be presumed to relate to an Innovation which was
          made during the term of Employee's employment unless Employee can
          provide satisfactory evidence to the contrary.
                 (g)     With respect to any Innovations in which the
          Company owns an interest under this Agreement, Employee agrees
          either during or after his employment, without charge to the
          Company (but at the Company's sole expense), and upon the
          Company's request, to execute, acknowledges, and deliver all such
          further documents including applications for Letters Patent,
          and/or copyright registration, as may be necessary or, in the
          opinion of the Company advisable, to obtain Letters Patent and/or
          copyright registration for Innovations in the United States and
          in any other country, and the right to claim priority based on
          the first filed patent application anywhere in the world, and to
          vest title thereto in the Company and its successors, assigns or
                 (h)     Employee agrees that upon leaving the employment
          of the Company, Employee shall not take with him any of the
          Company's property including, but not limited to, new product
          information, blueprints, drawings, sketches, notebooks, computer
          programs, formulas, data, listings, specifications and documents,
          or copies thereof, and any items relating to or exhibiting the
          company's Proprietary Information.
                 (i)     Further, as to any Innovations in which Employee
          owns an interest and the Company does not, whether invented,
          created or acquired prior to or during Employee's employment by
          the Company, Employee will not incorporate or use, or participate
          in the incorporation or use, of any such Innovations into any
          products or services of the Company, and upon discovery that any
          such Innovations have been, or are being, or are about to be,
          incorporated or used in the Company's products or services or a
          product or service being designed or planned for or by the
          Company in violation of any rights Employee may claim, Employee
          shall give the Company written notice of that fact, together with
          such detail as is then known, within fourteen (14) days of such
          discovery. Employee agrees that if, in breach of these
          provisions, Employee incorporates or uses, or participates in the
          incorporation or use, of any such Innovations in any products or
          services of the Company, or upon discovery that such Innovations
          have been, are being or are about to be incorporated or used in a
          Company product or service or a product or service being designed



          or planned for or by the Company, and Employee does not give
          the Company written notice of that fact, together with such
          detail as is then known, within fourteen (14) days of such
          discovery, then to that extent, the Company shall have a
          royalty free, transferable,  non-exclusive license to make,
          have made, reproduce, use and sell and  otherwise practice any
          such Innovations only in connection with such  product or
          service in which such Innovation has been incorporated.
              Without in any way limiting or waiving any right or
    remedy accorded to Company or any limitation placed upon Employee
    by law, Employee agrees as follows:
              (a) Acknowledgment: Employee understands and agrees
    that Company (for the purpose of this paragraph 7 Company shall
    also include Acclaim) is engaged in the highly competitive
    business of computer software development; that Company's success
    is highly dependent upon the protection of Company's trade
    secrets and confidential information; and, that Company has
    invested considerable resources of its time and money in
    developing its products, services, good will, procedures,
    clients, techniques, special training, client lists, manuals,
    records, documents, and other trade secrets and confidential
    information. Company and Employee agree that upon and during
    employment under this Agreement Company has provided and will
    provide Employee access to and valuable knowledge regarding
    Company's trade secrets and confidential information. Company
    and Employee further acknowledge and agree that by virtue of
    employment with Company under this Agreement Employee will be
    provided the opportunity to develop and refine valuable skills,
    including but not limited to skills relating to the development
    of computer software. Employee acknowledges and agrees that the
    use of such valuable skills, trade secrets or confidential
    information, or of Employee's expertise or leadership, for the
    benefit of Company's Competitors would be greatly harmful to
    Company, and that company's willingness to enter into business
    with Employee and to provide Employee access to its trade secrets
    and confidential information and to the opportunity to develop
    and refine valuable skills in computer software development, is
    conditioned upon (i) the protection of Company's trade secrets
    and confidential information for Company's sole and exclusive
    benefit, (ii) the retention of Employee's expertise and
    leadership during the Term of this Agreement for the sole and
    exclusive benefit of Company, and not for any Competitor, and
    (iii) the protection of Company against Employee's use for the
    benefit of any Competitor of the valuable skills Employee will
    acquire, develop and/or refine by virtue of employment with
    Company under this Agreement. Employee therefore agrees that the


    covenants and confidentiality provisions set forth in this
    Agreement are reasonable and necessary for the protection of
    Company's legitimate interests, and further agrees that his
    employment under this Agreement, and the training, opportunities
    for professional growth, and the knowledge of Company's
    confidential information and trade secrets to which he will gain
    access by virtue of employment under this Agreement, constitute
    good, sufficient and adequate consideration for the covenants and
    confidentiality provisions set forth in this Agreement.

              (b)     Limited Non-Competition. Employee expressly
    covenants and agrees that upon the termination of his employment
    with Company, for any reason or no reason, with or without cause,
    Employee shall not, directly or indirectly, alone or in concert
    with others, for a period of one (1) year from the effective date
    of such termination, compete with Company in any manner or form,
    including but not limited to serving in the capacity of employee,
    agent, consultant, owner, investor, stockholder, partner, and/or
    independent contractor for any Competitor, nor will Employee
    within said period, except for or on behalf of Company, solicit
    or attempt to solicit clients, business or patronage for the
    development or sale of any product or service of Company.
    Employee acknowledges and agrees that the computer software
    development industry in which Company is engaged is not confined
    to any particular geographic market, but rather is global in
    geographic scope, and that a global geographic scope to the
    limited covenant of non-completion set forth herein is therefore
    reasonable and necessary for the protection of Company's assets,
    trade secrets, confidential information, and other legitimate
    business interests. Accordingly, the absence of a more
    restricted geographic scope for the limited covenant of non-
    competition set forth herein shall not be invoked as or provide a
    defense to the enforceability of this Agreement or any provision
    hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, Employee
    shall have the right to own as a passive investment up to five
    (5%) of any Competitor, provided such Competitor is a public

              (c) Limited Non-Solicitation of Company Clients:
    Employee expressly covenants and agrees that for the Term of this
    Agreement or for the twelve (12) month period following the
    termination of his employment with Company, for any or no reason,
    with or without cause, whichever is later, Employee shall not,
    directly or indirectly, alone or in concert with others, solicit
    or induce, or attempt to solicit or induce any Company Client to
    obtain or secure computer software or its development from or
    through a Competitor.



              (d)     Limited Non-Solicitation of Company Employees:
    Employee expressly covenants and agrees that for the Term of this
    Agreement or for the twelve (12) month period following the
    termination of his employment with Company, for any or no reason,
    with or without cause, whichever, is later, Employee shall not,
    directly or indirectly, alone or in concert with others, recruit,
    solicit or induce, or attempt to recruit, solicit or induce any
    employee or officer of Company to terminate, alter, or modify
    their employment or relationship with Company.
              (e)     Reasonableness of Post-Employment Restrictions.
    The covenants set forth in this Paragraph 7 are ancillary to this
    Agreement. Employee agrees and understands that these covenants
    are necessary for the protection of Company due to Company's legitimate
    interest in protecting its products, product development, good will,
    business practices, confidential information, trade secrets, and client
    base. Employee acknowledges and agrees that the restrictions set forth in
    these covenants are reasonable in scope, time, territory, and type of
              (f)     Confidential Information: The Employee agrees
    that, neither during the Term nor at any time thereafter shall
    the Employee (A) disclose to any person, firm, or corporation not
    employed by the Company or not engaged to render services to the
    Company or any parent, subsidiary or affiliate of Company
    (hereinafter individually referred to as a "Protected Company") or
    (B) use for the benefit of himself, or others, any confidential information
    of any Protected Company obtained by the Employee prior to the execution of
    this Agreement or during the Term, including, without limitation,
    "know-how", trade secrets, details of supplier's, manufacturer's,
    Employee's or distributor's contracts, pricing policies, financial data,
    operational methods, marketing and sales information or strategies,
    product development techniques or plans, or any strategies relating
    thereto, technical processes, designs and design projects, and other
    proprietary information of any Protected Company; provided, however, that
    this provision shall not preclude the Employee from making, upon advice of
    counsel, any disclosure required by any applicable law or using or
    disclosing information known generally to the public (other than
    information known generally to the public as a result of any violation of
    this Paragraph 7(f)) by or on behalf of the Employee. For the purpose of
    this Agreement, Company's confidential information includes, but is not
    necessarily limited to, any and all information not lawfully and generally
    available to the public concerning Company or any of its products,
    services, clients, affairs, personnel or suppliers. Company's confidential
    information shall at all times, both during the term of this Agreement and
    at all times thereafter, be and remain the



    property of Company for its sole and exclusive use and benefit,
    and Employee shall deliver all documents containing or reflecting
    such information to Company at any time upon request of Company,
    and in any event shall deliver all such documents to Company upon
    the termination of his employment regardless of whether or not
    expressly requested to do so at the time employment pursuant to
    this Agreement ceases.
                 (g)  Breach of Covenants. In the event of any breach
    or threatened breach of any covenant or promise set forth herein,
    Company shall be entitled to seek judicial remedies in any
    appropriate court for the redress of such breach, and Employee
    further agrees that he will submit to the rendition of a
    temporary restraining order, without prior notice, and thereafter
    to temporary and permanent injunctions against any and all such
                 (a)  Rights and Remedies Upon Breach: If the Employee
    breaches, or threatens to commit a breach of, any of the
    provisions of paragraph 7 hereof (the "Restrictive Covenants"),
    the Company shall have the following rights and remedies, each of
    which rights and remedies shall be independent of the other and
    severally enforceable, and all of which rights and remedies shall
    be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights and
    remedies available to the Company at law or in equity.
                 (b)  Specific Performance: The right and remedy to have
    the Restrictive Covenants specifically enforced by any court
    having equity jurisdiction, it being acknowledged and agreed that
    any such breach or threatened breach will cause irreparable
    injury to the Company and that money damages will not provide an
    adequate remedy to the Company.
                 (c)  Severability of Covenants: If any court determines
    that any of the Restrictive Covenants, or any part thereof, is
    invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of the Restrictive
    Covenants shall not thereby be affected and shall be given full
    effect, without regard to the invalid portions.
                 (d)  Blue-Pencilling: If any court construes any of the
    Restrictive Covenants, or any part thereof, to be unenforceable
    because of the duration or geographical scope of such provision,
    such court shall have the power to reduce the duration or scope
    of such provision and, in its reduced form, such provision shall
    then be enforceable.



                 (e)  Enforceability in Jurisdictions: The parties
    intend to and hereby confer jurisdiction to enforce the
    Restrictive Covenants upon the courts of any jurisdiction within
    the geographical scope of such Restrictive Covenants. If the
    courts of any one or more of such jurisdictions hold the
    Restrictive Covenants unenforceable by reason of the breadth of
    such scope or otherwise, it is the intention of the parties that
    such determination not bar or in any way affect Company's right
    to the relief provided in this paragraph 8. in the courts of any
    other jurisdiction within the geographical scope of such
    Restrictive Covenants, as to breaches of such Restrictive
    Covenants in such other respective jurisdictions, such
    Restrictive Covenants as they relate to each jurisdiction being,
    for this purpose, severable into diverse and independent
                 (f)  No Waiver, Cumulative Remedies: The failure of any
    party to this Agreement to seek redress for a violation of or to
    insist upon the strict performance of any covenant or condition
    of this Agreement shall not prevent a subsequent act, which would
    have originally constituted a violation, from having the effect
    of an original violation. The rights and remedies provided by
    this Agreement are cumulative and the use of any one right or
    remedy by any party shall not preclude or waive the right to use
    any or all other remedies. Said rights and remedies are given in
    addition to any other rights or remedies the parties may have by
    law, statute, ordinance or otherwise.
                 (g)  Life/Disability Insurance: During the term
    hereof, Company shall have the right to obtain insurance on the
    life, or for disability, of Employee at Company's sole cost and
    expense, with Company being the sole beneficiary thereof.
    Employee agrees to fully cooperate with Company, at Company's
    sole cost and expense, in connection with the obtaining of such a
    policy, including, without limitation, Employee's submission to a
    physical examination and the completion of any and all documents
    necessary or desirable in respect thereof. Neither Employee nor
    Employee's estate shall have any right to claim the benefit of
    any such policy that company obtains.
                 (a)  Termination Upon Death or Disability: If during
    the Term, Employee should die this Agreement shall be deemed to
    have terminated on the date of Employee's death. If during the
    Term, Employee should become so physically or mentally disabled
    whether totally or partially, that Employee is unable to perform
    the duties, functions and responsibilities required hereunder for
    (aa) a period of two (2) consecutive months or (bb) shorter
    periods aggregating to three (3) months within any period of



    twelve (12) months ("Disability"), then in such event, Company
    may, at any time thereafter, by written notice to Employee,
    either suspend the Term hereof and Company's (other than
    Company's obligations as set forth in paragraphs 5 and 9(a)(i)
    below) and Employee's obligations hereunder or terminate
    Employee's employment hereunder. Employee agrees to submit to
    reasonable medical examinations upon the request of Company. The
    existence of Employee's Disability for the purposes of this
    Agreement shall be determined by a reputable physician selected
    by Company who is experienced in the relevant field of medicine.
    In the event that Company initially elects to suspend the Term it
    may at any time thereafter elect to terminate this Agreement.
    Further in the event Company elects to suspend the Term hereof
    and Company's obligations hereunder, then such suspension shall
    be for the duration of such Disability (or such shorter period of
    Company thereafter elects to terminate the Term) and the Term
    shall be automatically extended by a number of days equal to the    
    total number of days of the suspension, or such fewer number of
    days of which Company may advise Employee in writing but in no
    event shall this Agreement expire later than December 31, 2000.
    Employee may only return to work following such Disability upon
    submission to Company of a certificate from the physician
    selected by the Company as aforesaid certifying that Employee is
    able to return to work. No suspension shall in any manner
    suspend or otherwise impair Company's or Employee's rights under
    this Agreement except as may be modified by this paragraph 9(a).

                 (i)  In the event Company elects to suspend the
    Term of this Agreement as provided herein, then Employee's
    compensation shall on the sixtieth day following the inception of
    the illness or accident which precipitated such Disability be
    reduced to a sum equal to Sixty Five Thousand ($65,000.00)
    Dollars less any sums received by him from any disability
    insurance.  If Company elects to suspend the Term and such
    suspension period includes a date on which Employee is otherwise
    entitled to have Acclaim shares of Common Stock released to him
    pursuant to the terms of the Escrow Agreement, Employee shall
    continue to be entitled to such shares and shall have the right
    to send the appropriate notice to the Escrow Agent under the
    Escrow Agreement to authorize the release of such shares to him.

                 (b)  Termination for Cause: Company may terminate this
     Agreement and Employee's employment hereunder, without any
     further obligation to Employee after the date of termination
     (except as expressly provided herein) for "cause" which includes,
     but shall not be limited to, any of the following; (i) a material
     breach of this Agreement by Employee; (ii) the failure of
     Employee to perform services and duties exclusively for Company;
     (iii) the failure or inability of Employee to provide services of
     a quality sufficient to meet the reasonable business needs of



     Company; (iv) a material failure by Employee to comply with any
     material rule or regulation of Company reasonably related to his
     employment; (v) Employee's willful insubordination; or (vi)
     Employee's commission of a felony. Any termination of Employee's
     services hereunder shall be effected by notice in writing stating
     the reason therefor, which notice shall be given to Employee as   
     provided in paragraph 12 hereof. To the extent practicable,
     Employee shall have the opportunity to cure any breach within ten
     (10) days after receiving written notice thereof from Company.
     The foregoing cure provision will not be applicable to conduct
     which had previously been the subject of such notification. In
     the event Employee is terminated for "cause", Company's
     obligations to Employee shall be limited to the payment to
     Employee of the salary through such effective date of termination
     (but no "incentive type compensation") and all of Employee's
     Fringe Benefits.
                 (c)  Designation of Beneficiary: The parties hereto
     agree that the Employee shall designate, by written notice to the
     Company, a beneficiary to receive any payments described in
     paragraph 9 in the event of his death. The designation of any
     such beneficiary may be changed by the Employee from time to time
     by written notice to the Company. In the event the Employee
     fails to designate a beneficiary as herein provided, any payments
     which are to be made to the Employee's designated beneficiary
     under this paragraph 9 shall be made to the Employee's widow. If
     the Employee has no designees or widow, such payments shall be
     paid to the Employee's estate.
                 (a)  Right to Enter Into Agreement: Employee is under
     no disability, restriction or prohibition, whether contractual or
     noncontractual (i) with respect to his right to execute this
     Agreement, (ii) to grant the rights granted by him to the Company
     hereunder, and (iii) with respect to his right to perform each
     and every term and provision hereof, and to develop and design
     the Software.
                 (b)  Breach Under Other Agreement or Arrangement:
     Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement nor the
     performance by Employee of any of his obligations hereunder will
     constitute a violation or breach of, or a default under, any
     agreement, arrangement or understanding, or any other restriction
     of any kind, to which Employee is a party or by which Employee is


                 (c)  Services Rendered Deemed Special, Etc: Employee
     acknowledges and agrees that the services to be rendered by him
     hereunder are of a special, unique, extraordinary and intellectual
     character which gives them peculiar value, the loss of which cannot be
     adequately compensated for in an action at law and that a breach of any
     term, condition or covenant hereof will cause irreparable harm and injury
     to Company and in addition to any other available remedy Company will be
     entitled to seek injunctive relief.
                 (d)  Indemnity: Employee hereby agrees and does hereby
     indemnify save and hold Company harmless from and against any and
     all damages, liabilities, costs, losses and expenses (including
     legal costs and reasonable attorney's fees) arising out of or in
     connection with any claim, demand or action by a third party
     which is inconsistent with any of the warranties, representations
     or agreements made by Employee in this Agreement. Employee
     agrees to reimburse Company, on demand, for any payment made by
     Company at any time with respect to any such demand, liability,
     costs, loss or expense to which the foregoing indemnity applies;
     provided, such payment arises from a final non-appealable
     judgment or arbitration or a settlement made with Employee's
     prior consent, which consent Employee shall not unreasonably
     withhold. Company shall notify Employee in writing of any such
     claim, demand or action promptly after Company has been formally
     advised thereof and Employee shall have the right, at his
     expense, to participate in the defense thereof with counsel of
     his choice.
         11.  COMPANY'S INDEMNITY:

     to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of the State of Texas

     policies the Company may elect to maintain generally for the
     benefit of its officers and/or employees, against all costs,
     charges and expenses whatsoever incurred or sustained by him in
     connection with any action, suit or proceeding to which he may be
     made a party by reason of his being or having been an officer
     and/or employee of the Company and its subsidiaries and

    part to any parent or wholly or majority owned subsidiary or to
    any person, firm, or corporation owning or acquiring all or

    effect of an original violation of the Agreement, nor shall any
    waiver on the part of any party of any right or remedy hereunder,
