For purposes of the foregoing sentence, no act, or failure to act, on Executive's part shall be considered “willful” unless the Executive acted, or failed to act, in bad faith or without reasonable belief that his act or failure to act was in the best interest of the Company or any subsidiary; or

 

(ii)         the conviction of the Executive of, or indictment (or procedural equivalent, or guilty plea or plea of nolo contender) of the Executive for (A) a felony or (B) any misdemeanor involving moral turpitude where the circumstances reasonably would have a negative impact on the Company, deceit, dishonesty or fraud; provided, however, that Executive shall have a period of 15 days to cure such conduct after written reasonably specific notice thereof, unless such conduct (as in the case of dishonesty or fraud) is not reasonably curable; or

 

(iii)       material breach of this Agreement; provided, however, that Executive shall have a period of 15 days to cure such conduct after written reasonably specific notice thereof, unless such conduct is not reasonably curable.

 

(b)            Termination by the Company Without Cause . Subject to the payment of Termination Benefits pursuant to Section 7(b), the Executive’s employment under this Agreement may be terminated by the Company, without Cause, upon not less than fifteen (15) days’ prior written notice to the Executive.

 

(c)            Death . The Executive’s employment with the Company shall terminate automatically upon his death.

 

(d)            Disability . If the Executive shall become Disabled so as to be unable to perform the essential functions of the Executive’s then existing position or positions under this Agreement with or without reasonable accommodation, the Board of Directors may remove the Executive from any responsibilities and/or reassign the Executive to another position with the Company for the remainder of the Term (and if applicable, Extended Term) or during the period of such Disability. Notwithstanding any such removal or reassignment, the Executive shall continue to receive the Executive’s full Salary (less any disability pay or sick pay benefits to which the Executive may be entitled under the Company’s policies) and benefits under Section 4 of this Agreement (except to the extent that the Executive may be ineligible for one or more such benefits under applicable plan terms) for a period of time equal to twelve (12) months payable at the same time as such amounts would otherwise have been paid to the Executive had he continued in his current capacity. If the Executive is unable to perform substantial services of any kind for the Company during this period, such period shall be considered a paid leave of absence and the Executive shall have the contractual right to return to employment at any time during such period. If the Executive’s Disability continues beyond such twelve (12) month period, the Executive’s employment may be terminated by the Company by reason of Disability at any time thereafter. For purposes hereof, the term “ Disabled ” or “ Disability ” shall mean a written determination that the Executive, as certified by at least two (2) duly licensed and qualified physicians, one (1) approved by the Board of Directors of the Company and one (1) physician approved by the Executive (the “ Examining Physicians ”), or, in the event of the Executive’s total physical or mental disability, the Executive’s legal representative, that the Executive suffers from a physical or mental impairment that renders the Executive unable to perform the Executive’s regular personal duties under this Agreement and that such impairment can reasonably be expected to continue for a period of six (6) consecutive months or for shorter periods aggregating one hundred eighty (180) days in any twelve (12) month period; provided, however, that the Executive’s primary care physician may not serve as one of the Examining Physicians without the consent of the Company and the Executive (or the Executive’s legal representation). The Executive shall cooperate with any reasonable request of a physician to submit to a physical examination for purposes of such certification. Nothing in this Section 6(d) shall be construed to waive the Executive’s rights, if any, under existing law including, without limitation, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, 29 U.S.C. §2601 et seq. and the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §12101 et seq.

(e)            Termination by the Executive for Good Reason . Subject to the payment of Termination Benefits pursuant to Section 7(b), the Executive’s employment under this Agreement may be terminated by the Executive for Good Reason. For purposes of this Agreement, “ Good Reason ” shall be present where Executive gives notice to the Board of Directors of his voluntary resignation within thirty (30) days after the occurrence of any of the following, without Executive’s written consent: (i) breach by the Company of the insurance or indemnification provisions herein or in the related indemnification agreement in substantially the form of Schedule C, or failure of the Company to pay or cause to be paid or delivered any amounts or options due Executive when due under the terms and conditions hereunder, in each case subject to a fifteen (15) day cure period by the Company following reasonably specific written notice by the Executive; (ii) the Executive’s not reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, subject to a thirty (30) day cure period by the Company following reasonably specific written notice by the Executive, unless the sole reason for such failure to report to the Chief Executive Officer is that a Change of Control occurred and as a result the Executive’s reporting structure in the buyer’s organization puts Executive at effectively the same or higher level of overall responsibility and authority (comparing the positions in each organization) as was the case immediately prior to such Change of Control, as reasonably determined by the Board prior to such Change of Control; or (iii) material diminution in Executive’s position, duties, authority or responsibility, without Cause, subject to a thirty (30) day cure period by the Company following reasonably specific written notice by the Executive. If the Executive fails to resign within sixty (60) days after the expiration of the applicable cure period, then such event will not be a basis to resign for Good Reason.

 

7.            Compensation Upon Termination .

 

(a)            Termination Generally . If the Executive’s employment with the Company is terminated for any reason during or upon expiration of the Term, the Company shall pay or provide to the Executive (or to his authorized representative or estate) (i) any earned but unpaid Salary payable on the Termination Date, (ii) accrued bonuses for a previously completed yearly or stub measurement period (for avoidance of doubt, no pro-rata bonus is payable under this clause, but only a bonus for a previously completed yearly or stub measurement period) earned but not yet paid, payable at the same time such amounts would otherwise have been paid to the Executive, (iii) any unpaid expense reimbursements, payable in accordance with the Company’s reimbursement policies, (iv) any accrued but unused vacation, payable on the Termination Date, and (v) any vested benefits the Executive may have under any of the Company Benefit Plans, payable as specified in the applicable plan documents (collectively, the “ Accrued Compensation ”).

(i)           continuation of the Executive’s Salary at the rate and in accordance with the Company’s payroll practices then in effect pursuant to Section 4(a); and

 

(ii)          continuation of any executive health and group health plan benefits to the extent authorized by and consistent with 29 U.S.C. § 1161 et seq. (commonly known as “COBRA”), subject to payment of premiums by the Company to the extent that the Company was covering such premiums as of the Termination Date (if permitted by law without violation of applicable discrimination rules, or, if not, the equivalent after-tax value payable as additional severance at the same time such premiums are otherwise payable);

 

(iii)         a pro-rata annual bonus through the Termination Date, as reasonably determined by the Compensation Committee applying the applicable standards in Schedule A and paid at the same time as the bonus would otherwise be payable under Section 4(b); and

The Company’s liability for Salary continuation pursuant to Section 7(b)(i) shall not be reduced by the amount of any severance pay paid to the Executive pursuant to any severance pay plan or stay bonus plan of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section 7(b) shall be construed to affect the Executive’s right to receive COBRA continuation entirely at the Executive’s own cost to the extent that the Executive may continue to be entitled to COBRA continuation after Company-paid premiums cease. The Executive shall be obligated to give prompt notice of the date of commencement of any employment during the Termination Benefits Period and shall respond promptly to any reasonable inquiries concerning any employment in which the Executive engages during the Termination Benefits Period.

The Executive will return to the Company all such materials and property as and when requested by the Company. In any event, the Executive will return all such materials and property immediately upon termination of the Executive’s employment for any reason. The Executive will not retain with the Executive any such material or property or any copies thereof after such termination.

 

(d)            Nonsolicitation . During the Term and for one (1) year thereafter, the Executive (i) will refrain from directly or indirectly employing, attempting to employ, recruiting or otherwise soliciting, inducing or influencing any person to leave employment with the Company (other than subordinate employees whose employment was terminated in the course of the Executive’s employment with the Company); and (ii) will refrain from soliciting or encouraging any customer or supplier to terminate or otherwise modify adversely its business relationship with the Company. The Executive understands that the restrictions set forth in this Section 8(d) are intended to protect the Company’s interest in its Confidential Information and established employee, customer and supplier relationships and goodwill, and agrees that such restrictions are reasonable and appropriate for this purpose.

 

(e)            Third-Party Agreements and Rights . The Executive hereby confirms that the Executive is not bound by the terms of any agreement with any previous employer or other party which restricts in any way the Executive’s use or disclosure of information or the Executive’s engagement in any business. The Executive represents to the Company that the Executive’s execution of this Agreement, the Executive’s employment with the Company and the performance of the Executive’s proposed duties for the Company will not violate any obligations the Executive may have to any such previous employer or other party, including under any non-competition agreement, invention or confidentiality agreement, with a former employer, client or any other person or entity. In the Executive’s work for the Company, the Executive will not disclose or make use of any information in violation of any agreements with or rights of any such previous employer or other party, and the Executive will not bring to the premises of the Company any copies or other tangible embodiments of non-public information belonging to or obtained from any such previous employment or other party. Further, the Executive agrees to indemnify the Company for any loss, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, that the Company may incur based upon or arising out of the Executive’s breach of this subsection.

 

(f)            Litigation and Regulatory Cooperation . During and after the Executive’s employment, the Executive shall cooperate reasonably with requests from the Company, or the Company’s legal counsel, in the defense or prosecution of any claims or actions now in existence or which may be brought in the future against or on behalf of the Company which relate to events or occurrences that transpired while the Executive was employed by the Company, provided, however, this obligation does not apply after the Executive ceases employment with the Company to any claim or action by the Company against the Executive, or any claim or action by the Executive against the Company. Such cooperation shall include, but not be limited to, being available to meet with counsel to prepare for discovery or trial and to act as a witness on behalf of the Company at mutually convenient times. During and after the Executive’s employment, the Executive also shall cooperate fully with the Company in connection with any investigation or review of any federal, state or local regulatory authority as any such investigation or review relates to events or occurrences that transpired while the Executive was employed by the Company. The Company shall reimburse the Executive for any reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with the Executive’s performance of obligations pursuant to this Section 8(f), and if the Executive spends more than four (4) hours in any calendar month in performance of these obligations, the Company shall pay the Executive $500 per hour for each part of an hour over four (4) hours in such calendar month.

(g)        Intellectual Property . Except as provided under Section 2870 of the California Labor Code (a copy of which is attached as Schedule D ), the Company shall be the sole owner of all the products and proceeds of Executive’s services hereunder, including, without limitation, all materials, ideas, concepts, formats, suggestions, developments, and other intellectual properties that Executive may acquire, obtain, develop or create in connection with his services hereunder and during the Term (and if applicable, Extended Term), free and clear of any claims by Executive (or anyone claiming under Executive) of any kind or character whatsoever (other than Executive’s rights and benefits hereunder). Executive shall, at the request of the Company, execute as of the Start Date, an Employee Confidential Information, Non-Solicitation and Invention Assignment Agreement and any other such assignments, certificates or other instruments as the Company may from time to time deem necessary or desirable to evidence, establish, maintain, perfect, protect, enforce or defend the Company’s right, title and interest in and to any such products and proceeds of Executive’s services hereunder.

 

(h)            Injunction . The Executive agrees that it would be difficult to measure any damages caused to the Company which might result from any breach by the Executive of the promises set forth in this Section 8, and that in any event money damages may be an inadequate remedy for any such breach. Accordingly, as further set forth in Section 9 of this Agreement, the Executive agrees that if the Executive breaches, or proposes to breach, any portion of this Agreement, the Company shall be entitled, in addition to all other remedies that it may have, to an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief to restrain any such breach without showing or proving any actual damage to the Company and without the need to post a bond or other security.

 

9.            Arbitration of Disputes . Executive (hereinafter in this Section 9 “you”) agrees that to the fullest extent permitted by law, any and all controversies, claims, or disputes between you and the Company (or between you and any present or former employee, officer, director, agent, or benefit plan of the Company in their capacity as such or otherwise) arising out of, relating to, or resulting from your employment with the Company or the termination of your employment with the Company will be resolved by final and binding arbitration. Claims subject to arbitration include, without limitation, any claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, the California Family Rights Act, the California Labor Code, and any other statutory or common-law claims.

In addition, either party may seek provisional remedies pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure § 1281.8(b). There will be no right or authority for any claim subject to arbitration to be heard or arbitrated on a class or collective basis, as a private attorney general, or in a representative capacity on behalf of any other person or entity.

 

You agree that any arbitration will be administered by JAMS (or other mutually agreeable alternative dispute resolution service) in accordance with its Employment Arbitration Rules & Procedures and subject to JAMS Policy on Employment Arbitration Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness (the “ JAMS Rules ”), a copy of whic
