Other Conditions for Employment

The Company is excited about the prospect of you joining our team, and we look forward to a beneficial and fruitful relationship. Nevertheless, you should be aware that your employment with the Company is for no specified period and constitutes at-will employment. Therefore, the Company is free to conclude its employment relationship with you at any time, with or without cause, and with or without advance notice. Similarly, you are free to resign at any time, for any reason or for no reason. Although not required due to the at-will nature of your employment, as a professional courtesy, we request that, in the event of resignation, you give the Company at least two week’s notice.

The Company conducts background investigations and reference checks on all of its potential employees. Your job offer, and employment, are contingent upon the successful clearance of such a background investigation and reference checks.

For purposes of federal immigration law, you will be required to provide to the Company documentary evidence of your identity and eligibility for employment in the United States. Such documentation must be provided to us within three (3) business days of your date of hire, or our employment relationship with you may be terminated.

We also ask that, if you have not already done so, you disclose to the Company any and all agreements relating to your prior employment that may affect your eligibility to be employed by the Company or limit the manner in which you may be employed. It is the Company’s understanding that any such agreements will not prevent you from performing the duties of your position and you represent that such is the case. Moreover, you agree that, during the term of your employment with the Company, you will not engage in any other employment, occupation, consulting or other business activity directly related to the business in which the Company is now involved or becomes involved during the term of your employment, nor will you engage in any other activities that conflict with your obligations to the Company. Similarly, you agree not to bring any third-party confidential information, including that of your former employer, to the Company, and that in performing your duties for the Company, you will not in any way utilize any such information.

As you know, the Company is involved in an industry that is highly competitive and that changes quickly. Thus, although the position we are offering you is as a SVP of Sales, the Company may change your position and/or your duties at any time, with or without cause or advance notice.

As a condition of your employment, you will also be required to sign and comply with an Employee Inventions Assignment, Confidentiality and Non-Solicitation Agreement, which requires you to, among other things, (a) assign to us any intellectual property that you may invent on our behalf during your employment at the Company, (b) protect our trade secrets and other confidential information and (c) refrain from soliciting our customers and employees for a period of one year after your employment term ends.
