Sample Business Contracts

Employment Agreement [Addendum] - Rentrak Inc. and Marty Graham

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.

WHEREAS, the Company recognizes that, as is the case with
many publicly-held corporations, the possibility of a Change
of Control (as defined below) exists and that such
possibility, and the uncertainty and questions which it may
raise among management, may result in the departure or
distraction of management personnel to the detriment of the
Company; and

WHEREAS, the Company has determined that appropriate steps
should be taken to reinforce and encourage the continued
attention and dedication of members of the Company's
management, including the Employee, to their assigned duties

WHEREAS, the Company and Employee executed an Employment
Agreement ("Employment Agreement") on May 17, 1997;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the
mutual covenants contained herein, the Company and the
Employee hereby amend their Employment Agreement as follows:

1.   Terms.        If Employee voluntarily terminates his
employment without "Good Reason" (as defined by Employee's
Employment Agreement) within two (2) months following a
Change of Control, Employee shall be eligible to receive the
following payment in proportion to Employee's years' of
service to the Company.  Specifically, Employee shall be
paid one week of Employee's base salary for each full year
that Employee has been employed with the Company.  In no
case, however, shall this payment amount to less than two
(2) months' of Employee's base salary.  This payment shall
be subject to all normal withholdings and deductions.
Employee acknowledges that voluntary termination by the
Employee without Good Reason at any time following a Change
of Control, shall not constitute "Good Reason" as defined by
Section(s) 2.05 of his/her Employment Agreement.  Employee
further acknowledges that such termination shall not entitle
him to any rights or benefits provided by Section 4.03 of
his Employment Agreement.

2.   Change of Control.  For purposes of this Addendum, a
"Change of Control" shall be defined pursuant to Employee's
Employment Agreement.

3.   Confidentiality, Proprietary, Trade Secret and Non-
Competition.  Employee acknowledges that this Change of
Control Addendum is only a modification of the Change of
Control provision of his existing Employment Agreement
already in effect and that it in no way alters Employee's
obligations under any Agreements, including, but not limited
to, the Employee Confidentiality and Noncompetition
Agreement which remains in full force and effect.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this
Addendum to be executed on its behalf by its duly authorized
officers, and Employee has set his hand, as of the date
first written above.
