Sample Business Contracts

Compensation Letter - Inc. and Mark Britto

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.

Re: Special Bonus

Dear Mark:

We have a tremendous challenge and opportunity ahead of us for the Year 2000 as
we drive for profitability in our core business and look to significantly expand
into new business segments.  I know you will play an integral part in that
effort.  Your continued hard work and dedication is very important to
and our shareholders.

Special Bonus
In recognition and appreciation of the above, the Company will pay you a special
bonus in the amount of $500,000 in one installment to be included with the first
regular payroll in January 2001.  The payment will be subject to standard
payroll practices and be subject to applicable withholding taxes.

Payment Conditions
The special payment is contingent upon you maintaining continued full time
employment for the period of January 3, 2000 through December 31, 2000.  If your
employment with the Company ends as result of voluntary termination or
termination for cause prior to December 31, 2000, you will forfeit the entire
payment which would have been paid in January of 2001.

I am very excited about our prospects for 2000 and beyond and am looking forward
working with you on achieving our goals.
