In your work for the Company, you will be expected not to use or disclose any confidential information, including trade secrets, of any former employer or other person to whom you have an obligation of confidentiality. Rather, you will be expected to use only that information which is generally known and used by persons with training and experience comparable to your own, which is common knowledge in the industry or otherwise legally in the public domain, or which is otherwise provided or developed by the Company. You agree that you will not bring onto the Companys premises any unpublished documents or property belonging to any former employer or other person to whom you have an obligation of confidentiality. You hereby represent that you have disclosed to the Company any contract you have signed that may restrict your activities on behalf of the Company.
Your regular work schedule is from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. As an exempt salaried employee, you will be expected to work additional hours as required by the nature of your work assignments. You will not be eligible for overtime premiums.
Your employment relationship with the Company is at-will. This means that you may terminate your employment with the Company at any time by providing two weeks of written advance notice and for any reason whatsoever simply by notifying the Company. Likewise, the Company may terminate your employment at any time, with or without cause with two weeks of written advance notice; provided, however, that the Company may terminate your employment immediately for Cause as defined below. Your employment at-will status can only be modified in a written agreement signed by you and by an authorized officer of the Company.
If your employment is terminated by the Company without Cause, you shall be entitled to receive a severance payment equal to three months salary. Cause shall be defined as (i) acts of embezzlement or misappropriation of funds or fraud; (ii) conviction of a felony or other crime involving moral turpitude, dishonesty or theft; (iii) willful unauthorized disclosure of the Companys confidential information; (iv) material violation of any terms of your employment agreement or the PIIA Agreement not cured within 30 days of receiving notice thereof; (v) being under the influence of drugs during performance of duties; (vi) engaging in behavior that would constitute grounds for liability for harassment or other egregious conduct that violates laws governing the workplace; or (vii) willful failure to perform assigned tasks where such failure is attributed to your gross insubordination, or dereliction of fiduciary or other obligations which are not cured within 30 days of receiving notice thereof.
This offer is contingent upon a background check clearance, reference check, and satisfactory proof of your right to work in the United States. You agree to assist as needed and to complete any documentation at the Companys request to meet these conditions. By signing below you agree to abide by all of the Companys policies applicable to similarly situated employees and acknowledge that your continued employment will be contingent upon you complying in all respects with the Companys policies and requirements, including those set forth in the Companys Employee Handbook to be provided to you.
