Sample Business Contracts

Offer Letter - National Fiberstock Corp. and Robert M. Miklas

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.

Dear Rob:

I am delighted to be able to confirm the continuing offer of employment as
President & CEO of NFC/DEC as provided for in the attached document.  Over the
past fifteen months I have developed a significant appreciation of your
leadership and operating skills, and I personally am delighted to be a part of
the DEC team.

I'd like to take this opportunity to formally acknowledge your skillful
leadership and the personal contributions you have made to DEC over the past
years as well as relative to the recent acquisition of Transkrit.  In my
judgement, your knowledge of the business and superior communication skills
were the principal reasons why we were able to obtain a favorable rate on the
Senior Notes and complete the transaction without a significant hitch.

In a relatively short period of time, and despite some foreboding impediments,
you have guided DEC from the bottom of the pile to a position where the top 
of the heap is within our sights, and I am envious of the new and exciting
challenges you face.  I want you to know that I will be there beside you and
behind you to provide leadership and assistance in whatever way possible to help
ensure the future growth and prosperity of the organization.
