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.

may, without liability, terminate the Executive's employment hereunder for cause
at any time upon written notice from the Board of Directors specifying such
cause, and thereafter the Company's obligations hereunder shall cease and
terminate; provided, however, that the Company shall pay the Executive 30 days
pay and that such written notice shall not be delivered until the Board of
Directors shall have given the Executive written notice specifying the conduct

      (2)  Habitual  neglect  of  duty  by  the  Executive;

responsibilities to the satisfaction of the Board. In the event of termination
without cause, the Company will pay the Executive three (3) months salary as
compensation. At least three months prior to the expiration of this contract,

cause, may terminate this Agreement upon 30 days' written notice to the Company.
In such event, the Executive shall be required to render the services required
under this Agreement during such 30-day period unless otherwise directed by the
Board of Directors. Compensation for vacation time not taken by Executive shall
be paid to the Executive at the date of termination.

      14.  Termination by the Executive with Cause.  The Executive may terminate
this employment with the Company at any time upon 30 days' written notice and
opportunity for the Company to remedy any non-compliance, by reason of (i) the
Company's material failure to perform its duties pursuant to this Agreement; or
(ii) any material diminishment in the duties and responsibilities, working
facilities, or benefits as described in paragraphs 2, 5, 6,and 8 of this

provision relating to termination, this Agreement shall terminate upon the
Executive's death. No severance allowance or compensation for vacation
time not taken by Executive shall be paid to the Executive's estate.

Event" which shall be defined to include (i) change in ownership of 50% or more
of the outstanding shares of the Company, or (ii) merger, consolidation,
reorganization or liquidation of the Company, the Executive shall receive lump
sum compensations equal to his annual salary and incentive or bonus payments, if
any, as would have been paid to the Executive during the Company's most recent
fiscal year (as if the Executive had been employed for the full fiscal year)
within 30 days of the Triggering Event. The Executive will also receive complete
vesting of any outstanding granted options an registration of all underlying
shares not previously registered. If the total amount of the change of control
compensation were to exceed three times the Executive's base amount (the average
annual taxable compensation of the Executive for the five years preceding the
year in which the change of control occurs), the Company and the Executive may
agree to reduce the lump sum compensation to be received by Executive in order
to avoid the imposition of the golden parachute tax as provided in the Tax
Reform Act of 1984, as amended by the Tax Reform Act of 1986.

      In the event the  Executive  is required to hire counsel to negotiate
on his behalf in connection with his termination or resignation from the Company
upon the occurrence of a Triggering Event, or in order to enforce the rights and
obligations of the Company as provided in this Paragraph, the Company shall
reimburse to the Executive all reasonable attorney's fees which may be expended
by the Executive in seeking to enforce the terms hereof. Such reimbursement
shall be paid every 30 days after the Executive provides copies of invoices from
the Executive's counsel to the Company. 17. Arbitration. Any controversy,
dispute or claim arising out of, or relating to this Agreement and/or its
interpretation shall, unless resolved by agreement of the parties, be settled by
binding arbitration in Denver, Colorado in accordance with the Rules of the
American Arbitration Association for employment disputes then existing. This
Agreement to arbitrate shall be specifically enforceable under the prevailing
arbitration laws of the State of Colorado. The award rendered by the arbitrators
shall be final and judgment may be entered upon the award in any court of the
State of Colorado having jurisdiction of the matter.

      If any legal  proceeding  and/or  arbitration  is  brought  to  enforce or
interpret the terms of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall bear all
attorney's fees, costs and necessary disbursements in such legal proceeding
and/or arbitration.
