Sample Business Contracts

Employment Agreement [Amendment No. 1] - Cerner Corp. and Glenn Tobin

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.

Cerner Associate Employment Agreement dated as of April 15, 1998 (the
"Agreement"); and

                  WHEREAS, Associate has accepted a temporary expatriate
assignment to the United Kingdom (U.K.), beginning October 1, 2003;

                  WHEREAS, Cerner and Associate desire to amend the Agreement as

         Cause (defined as dishonesty, illegal conduct, or breach of Cerner's
         policies) while on assignment in the U.K., the amount of Associate's
         severance will be one (1) year's current base salary, instead of the

         decision to return you to the U.S. prior to completion of the two year
         assignment), Cerner shall pay resignation payments of six (6) months
