Sample Business Contracts

Employment Agreement - National Medical Enterprises Inc. and Jeffrey C. Barbakow

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.

SUBJECT:     Perquisites & Benefits

In addition to benefits available to you through the flexible benefit
program (TGIF), the following is a listing of perquisites and other
benefits for which you are eligible.

1.  AUTOMOBILE ALLOWANCE - An allowance of $20,100 per year will be paid
    to you through the regular semi-monthly payroll. The tax
    department has advised that if the limo is provided in lieu of a car
    allowance on a temporary basis and consistent with the company's
    requirement to provide security to our CEO, it will not be treated as a
    taxable benefit. Therefore, I would propose your auto allowance to begin
    after the limo is released. Please let me know if you would like it
    handled differently.

2.  EXECUTIVE MEDICAL PLAN - The benefit provides you and your family
    reimbursement for healthcare expenses not covered under the basic
    medical, dental, and vision plans up to a maximum of $10,000 per year.
    Since it is an insured plan, you will not have a tax liability.

    The plan encourages executive health and wellness by requiring
    regular physical exams as a condition for continued participation.

3.  NME CREDIT CARDS - You will receive an American Express and
    MasterCard credit card for paying business and travel expenses. The
    billings will come to NME. You should clear the billings by submitting
    receipts for expenses on an expense report.

4.  ANNUAL INCENTIVE PLAN (AIP) - You will be named to be a participant
    in the Annual Incentive Plan with a target award of 70% of your base
    salary for attainment of 100% of stated goals for the year. (Goals are
    for EPS, quality, and personal performance).

5.  LONG-TERM INCENTIVE PLAN (LTIP) - You will be named to participate
    in the LTIP with a target award equal to 37.5% of your total targeted
    cash compensation (TCC). TCC is your base salary plus target AIP amount
    determined as of the entry date in the cycle. Awards are payable at the
    end of the three year cycle for attainment of stated business goals.

6.  CLUB MEMBERSHIP - The company will pay for membership in a business
    lunch club such as the Regency Club. This membership will not be
    considered taxable. You are eligible for reimbursement for membership in
    a country club if you wish - such costs are considered taxable income and
    would be imputed to you at year-end.

    the SERP.

    eligible for a life insurance benefit of two times your annual
    salary. The benefit is provided through split-dollar insurance and you
    will have taxable income based on the economic value of the benefit. I
    will provide you an estimate for your tax planning purposes. Although
    there is no requirement to do so, the company will pay you a bonus each
    year approximately equal to the amount of the imputed income.

    annual salary.

    eligible for an executive LTD benefit equal to 60% of your base pay to
    maximum of $25,000 per month. The cost of this plan will be imputed to
    you at year-end. The amount of the premium is $1,330 for the seven months
    of 1993 which at a 38% marginal tax rate, has an after tax cost to you of
    $505.40. Because you are paying the premium, the benefit will be
    delivered tax free.

11. BUSINESS TRAVEL ACCIDENT - NME Owned Aircraft - Coverage is provided
    in the amount of $400,000 per person to an aggregate of $7,200,000
