- WHEREAS, the Employer desires to employ the Employee in the position, and upon the terms, stated in this Agreement; and
- WHEREAS, the Employee desires to provide services to the Employer as an Employee.
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises and other good and valuable consideration considered hereinafter, the receipt and sufficiency of which are acknowledged by the Parties, the Employer and the Employee agree as follows:

- COMPENSATION & BENEFITS
The Employer shall pay to the Employee and the Employee accepts as full compensation for all services to be rendered to the Employer the compensation and benefits described in full on Exhibit B attached to this Agreement.
The Employer agrees to reimburse the Employee from time to time for all reasonable business expenses incurred by the Employee in performing the Employee’s duties for the Employer under this Agreement in accordance with the Employer’s policies, provided that the Employee presents to the Employer adequate records and other documented evidence required by the Employer for reimbursement of such expenses incurred on its behalf.
During the term of the Employee’s employment and for such longer period as the Employee may receive employment severance payments, the Employee shall not, directly or indirectly, as an Employee, Employer, consultant, advisor, agent, principal, partner, officer, director or in any other individual or representative capacity, engage or participate in any business or activity that is competitive in any manner whatsoever with the activities and business of the Employer; nor shall the Employee, during the term of the Employee’s employment induce or attempt to induce any Employee of the Employer to leave such employ for the purpose of joining any organization in competition with the Employer. This Section 5 shall survive expiration or termination of this Agreement.
This Agreement may be terminated by the Employer upon [DAYS] ([##]) days prior written notice to the Employee or the Employee’s personal representative in the event that:
(a) (i) The Employee commits any misfeasance in office (including gross negligence or recklessness) or any act of dishonesty or fraud against the Employer;

(iii) The Employee willfully breaches this Agreement or habitually neglects the Employee’s duties to the Employer.
