|1.||Engagement. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Service Provider hereby agrees to provide the Company with the services of those employees of Employer listed on Schedule A attached hereto, as may be modified from time to time (the "Leased Employees").

|2.||Term. This Agreement shall be for a term of six (6) months (the “Initial Term”). The Initial Term shall be automatically renewed for successive six (6) month periods (the “Renewal Term” and together with the Initial Term, the “Term”). Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time by giving ten (10) days’ notice to the other party.|
|3.||Non-Exclusivity. The Service Provider may enter into subsequent engagements with the Company or any other Company or person separate from this Agreement to provide the same or similar services as set forth in this Agreement; provided, however, that such subsequent engagements may not preclude or prevent the Service Provider from performing its duties under this Agreement.|

|5.||Fees. The Service Provider shall charge the Company on an hourly basis according the hourly rates outlined on Schedule A hereto to account for each hour that any Leased Employee performs services to the Company (the “Fees”). The Service Provider shall require each Leased Employee working on matters for the Company to document the hours worked on such matters and, by the close of business on the last day of each calendar month, to report the total hours worked for the Company during the prior month to the Service Provider and the Company’s Department of Human Resources. The Company further agrees to reimburse the Service Provider for all other direct costs or out of pocket expenses incurred in connection with the rendering of such services; provided, that, appropriate documentation of any such expenses is also provided to the Company. The Service Provider shall then present the Company with an invoice for the total Fees on (or the next business day following) the last day of each month, or as otherwise mutually agreed upon by the Company and the Service Provider.

The Service Provider shall determine the number of Leased Employees necessary to discharge the Service Provider’s obligations and responsibilities hereunder.|
|7.||Indemnification. The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless and defend the Service Provider, its affiliates and any of their respective officers, partners, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities expenses (including without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees payable to counsel of the Service Provider’s choice), judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts arising out of or relating to acts or omissions taken by the Service Provider in good faith while performing the Services for the Company.

|d.||Neither Party shall, directly or indirectly, engage in any conduct or make any statement, whether in commercial or noncommercial speech, disparaging or criticizing in any way any other party to this Agreement, except to the extent specifically required by law, and then only after consultation with the other party. This provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement.|
|a.||Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision, but this Agreement shall be reformed, construed and enforced to the minimum extent necessary to remove any portion of any such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions necessary to make the balance of such provision valid legal and enforceable.|
|b.||Failure to insist upon strict compliance with any of the terms, covenants or conditions hereof shall not be deemed a waiver of such term, covenant, or condition. A waiver of any provision of this Agreement must be made in writing, designated as a waiver, and signed by the party against whom its enforcement is sought.
