This is a senior employment agreement template that we at Genie AI have used to hire 20+ employees. The agreement is structured so that all the key commercial terms that would change per employee are kept at the bottom in a table in the schedule, to make it easy to use on an ongoing basis. Since this is a senior employment contract, it contains a significant amount of provisions for restrictive covenants, such as non-solicitation (enticing away of customers, business or employees after the employee has left) and non-compete clauses. There is also provision to make reference to an incentive scheme such as an EMI option scheme, however it is recommended to keep this in a separate agreement, in order to avoid a binding promise and avoid variations to the incentive scheme resulting in variations to the terms of employment. Apart from that this is a fairly simple agreement that is easy to use and repeat for many employees.
