Employment Agreement [Amendment No. 1] - Bio-Reference Laboratories Inc. and Howard Dubinett

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.

AMENDMENT NO.  1 dated as of November 1, 2002 to an EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT (“the Agreement”) entered into as of May 1, 1997 between Bio-Reference Laboratories, Inc., a New Jersey corporation (“the Company”) and Howard Dubinett (“Employee”).




WHEREAS the parties executed the Agreement as of May 1, 1997 providing for the employment by the Company of the Employee as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company through October 31, 2002; and


WHEREAS the parties hereby agree to amend the Agreement to extend the term for two years, to grant the Company the option to extend the Agreement for up to two additional consecutive one-year periods, to modify the compensation terms and to effect such other changes as are herein set forth;


NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants contained herein and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties hereto agree to amend the Agreement as follows:


A.  “1.  Terms of Employment.” The “Expiration Date” as set forth in this section is extended to October 31, 2004.


B.  “2.  Renewal.” This section is hereby amended to read in its entirety as follows:


“2.  Renewal. This Agreement will automatically renew for an additional one year period (the “First Renewal Year”) and will automatically renew for a second one year period (the “Second Renewal Year”); provided that the Company, at its sole option, may elect not to continue the Agreement after the Expiration Date, by written notice to the Employee no less than one (1) month before the Expiration Date; and provided further, that if this Agreement is renewed for the First Renewal Year, the Company, at its sole option, may elect not to continue this Agreement for the Second Renewal Year by written notice to the Employee no less than one (1) month before the end of the First Renewal Year.”


C.  “4.  Compensation.” The “Base Compensation” as set forth in paragraph (a) of this section in each year of the extension period (including the First and Second Renewal Year, if applicable) shall in each case be not less than the salary and bonus authorized for the Employee by the Company’s Compensation Committee with respect to the Company’s 2002 fiscal year.  In view of the possibility that future payments of premiums by the Company under the “Split Dollar” Life Insurance programs referred to in paragraph (b) of this section could be deemed an extension of credit prohibited by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, it is agreed that the Company will not be required to make any future premium payments under these programs unless and until this issue is clarified and provided such payments are not prohibited by the Act.  The provisions of paragraph (g) of this section concerning increases in Base



Compensation based upon percentage increases in the Consumer Price Index shall continue to be applicable with respect to each year that the Agreement as extended (including any renewal year if applicable) is in effect.


D.  “5.  Issuance of Stock and Options.”  This provision under the Agreement has been fully satisfied in that he stock issued pursuant to paragraph (a) has been issued to the Employee and is no longer forfeitable and the ISOs referred to in paragraph (b) have also been issued to the Employee.


E.  Other Provisions.  Except as specifically modified or amended herein, the parties hereto hereby reaffirm each provision of the Agreement as of the date hereof.


IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned have each duly executed this Amendment No.1 to the Agreement as of the date first above written.
