Sample Business Contracts

Employment Agreement [Amendment No. 1] - World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. and Jim Ross

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.

The parties hereby agree to amend paragraph 4 entitled “Compensation” to add the following subparagraph (d):

“ (d) With regard to that certain book entitled “Can You Take the Heat” (“Cookbook”), (i) Employee shall be paid twenty-five percent (25%) of the Cookbook’s Net Receipts received by WWE. The Cookbook’s Net Receipts means the gross amount received by WWE less expenses incurred by WWE or its licensing agent for the Cookbook; (ii) Employee shall be paid five percent (5%) of the Direct Sales Net Receipts derived by WWE. The Cookbook’s Direct Sales Net Receipts means the gross amount received by WWE for direct sales of the Cookbook after deduction of local taxes and applicable arena commissions allocated for concession sales and cost of goods; and (iii) Net Receipts and Direct Sales Net Receipts shall be payable post termination or expiration of the Agreement and shall be payable to Employee’s heirs post death.”
