Sample Business Contracts

Employment Agreement - Alias/Wavefront and Robert K. Burgess

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.

Toronto, Ontario  M5C 1P1

Dear Mr. Burgess:

I am pleased to confirm your employment with Silicon Graphics, Inc. as President
of our newly created software organization, Alias/Wavefront, on the terms and
conditions included in this letter and the accompanying offer letter.

We look forward to a mutually satisfactory relationship and would hold you to no
specific termination period if you wish to leave the Company's employ.  However,
if Silicon Graphics terminates your employment prior to June 30, 1996, for any
reason other than for cause (as defined in the Continuation Agreement which is
forthcoming), then a severance payment of two (2) years of target compensation,
which would include base salary, your divisional variable component and the
corporate executive annual incentive plan, would be payable.  After June 30,
1996, this severance payment would be reduced to one (1) year of target
compensation as defined above.  The severance payments provided in this letter
will not be payable if you receive payments pursuant to the Continuation
Agreement between you and Silicon Graphics, or any successor to that agreement.

Please contact me if you have any questions.  You may accept this offer by
signing the accompanying offer letter and returning the signed copy.


Thomas A. Jermoluk
President and Chief Operating Officer
