Senior Employment Agreement (Genie)

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.

Employee Laptop Policy

Laptops are especially vulnerable to physical damage, loss or theft, either for resale or for the information they contain. The impacts of breaches include not just the replacement value of the hardware but also the value of any data on them, or accessible information through them. Information is a vital asset. The Organisation depends very heavily on our computer systems to provide complete and accurate business information when and where we need it. The impacts of unauthorised access to or modification of important and/or sensitive data can far outweigh the cost of the equipment itself.
