Employees and Employee Benefits. (a) All individuals employed by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries immediately prior to the Closing (“Covered Employees”) shall automatically become employees of Acquiror as of the Closing. Following the Closing, Acquiror shall maintain employee benefit plans and compensation opportunities for the benefit of Covered Employees that provide employee benefits and compensation opportunities that, in the aggregate, are substantially comparable to the employee benefits and compensation opportunities that are made available to similarly-situated employees of Acquiror under the Acquiror Benefit Plans; provided, however, that: (i) in no event shall any Covered Employee be eligible to participate in any closed or frozen Acquiror Benefit Plan; and (ii) until such time as Acquiror shall cause Covered Employees to participate in the Acquiror Benefit Plans, a Covered Employee’s continued participation in Company Benefit Plans shall be deemed to satisfy the foregoing provisions of this sentence (it being understood that participation in the Acquiror Benefit Plans may commence at different times with respect to each Acquiror Benefit Plan).
Employees and Employee Benefits. (a) Commencing on the Closing Date, each Seller shall terminate all employees of the Business who are actively at work on the Closing Date, and, at Buyer’s sole discretion, Buyer may offer employment, on an “at will” basis, to any or all of such employees. The applicable Seller shall bear any and all obligations and liability under the WARN Act resulting from employment losses pursuant to this Section 6.05.
Employees and Employee Benefits. (a) Upon consummation of the Merger and the Bank Merger, all employees of Company and Great American shall be deemed to be at-will employees of Purchaser and FCB, respectively, subject only to, and to the extent provided in, those written employment agreements which have been disclosed on the Company Disclosure Schedule. At the discretion of Purchaser, subject to the requirements of the Code and except as expressly set forth in this Section 5.5, from and after the Effective Time, all Company Benefit Plans shall continue to be maintained separately, or be consolidated, frozen or terminated. Employees of Company and Great American who continue as employees of Purchaser and FCB ("Continuing Employees") shall be entitled to participate, commencing at the Effective Time, on an equitable basis in the same benefit plans, programs or policies as are generally available to employees of Purchaser or FCB, as the case may be, of similar rank and status. For purposes of eligibility, vesting, accrual of benefits (but not for benefit accrual purposes under any qualified defined benefit plan maintained by Purchaser) and determination of the level of benefits under any employee benefit plans, arrangements or policies (including, without limitation, severance, vacation, sick and other leave policies) maintained by Purchaser, Continuing Employees will be credited with prior years of service with Company or Great American. Purchaser and FCB shall give service credit to Continuing Employees (and their dependents) with respect to the satisfaction of the limitations as to pre-existing condition exclusions, evidence of insurability requirements and waiting periods for participation and coverage that are applicable under the employee welfare benefit plans (within the meaning of Section 3(1) of ERISA) of Purchaser or FCB, equal to the credit that any such employee had received as of the Effective Time towards the satisfaction of any such limitations and waiting periods under the comparable employee welfare benefit plans of Company or Company Subsidiaries and shall waive preexisting condition limitations to the same extent waived under the corresponding plans of Company or Company Subsidiaries. Nothing contained herein shall obligate Purchaser to provide severance or other benefits that are based on years of service with duplicative benefits for the same years of service. (b) No Continuing Employee shall be subject to any waiting period under any welfare benefit plan of Purchaser to...
Employees and Employee Benefits. From and after the Effective Time, Parent shall treat all service by the Company Employees (as defined below) with the Company and their respective predecessors prior to the Effective Time for all purposes as service with Parent (except for purposes of benefit accrual under defined benefit pension plans or to the extent such treatment would result in duplicative accrual on or after the Closing Date of benefits for the same period of service), and, with respect to any medical or dental benefit plan of the Parent in which the Company Employees participate after the Effective Time, Parent shall waive or cause to be waived any pre-existing condition exclusions and actively-at-work requirements (provided, however, that no such waiver shall apply to a pre-existing condition of any Company Employee who was, as of the Effective Time, excluded from participation in a comparable Plan by virtue of such pre-existing condition), and shall provide that any covered expenses incurred on or before the Effective Time during the plan year of the applicable Plan in which the Effective Time occurs by a Company Employee or a Company Employee’s covered dependent shall be taken into account for purposes of satisfying applicable deductible, coinsurance and maximum out-of-pocket provisions after the Effective Time to the same extent as such expenses are taken into account for the benefit of similarly situated employees of Parent and subsidiaries of Parent. For purposes of this Section 6.2(c), “Company Employees” means persons who are, as of the Effective Time, employees of the Company.

Sellers shall pay in full all compensation, bonuses, accrued severance, and other payments that may result from the termination of employment by Sellers of any employee(s) of Sellers and any compensation due such employees up to and including the Closing Date. Sellers shall provide Buyer a list of those employees terminated by Sellers on or before the Closing Date and shall confirm to Buyer in writing the communication of said terminations. Buyer or its designee shall be responsible for and shall assume any and all costs, obligations or liabilities directly related to the termination by Buyer or Buyer’s designee of any former employee of Seller who is hired by Buyer or Buyer’s designee on or after the Closing Date. After the Closing Date, Buyer shall provide to employees of Sellers hired by Buyer the seniority such persons had as Seller’s employees, for purposes of determining employee benefits, including health insurance and benefit plans of every kind, and such newly hired employees shall be entitled to participate in all employee benefits (including health insurance) immediately upon the Closing Date, with no waiting period prior to participation, if allowed by applicable ...

Commencing on the Closing Date, the Surviving Corporation shall observe the terms of all existing Collective Bargaining Agreements that govern the wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment of employees of the Company or its subsidiaries who are covered by such Collective Bargaining Agreements and who continued to be employed by the Company or the Surviving Corporation or any subsidiary or Affiliate thereof (the “Continuing Union-Represented Employees”).
Employees and Employee Benefits. (a) Buyer hereby agrees to offer employment, effective the day after the Closing Date, to all individuals who are, on the Closing Date, active, full or part-time Publication Employees (including employees on short-term leave). With respect to each such Publication Employee to whom Buyer offers employment, Buyer shall offer to employ such person at a rate of total compensation substantially similar as that which was paid to such Publication Employee immediately prior to Closing.

(a) Effective as of the Closing, Buyer shall assume the PEO Agreement and continue to employee the PEO Employees as co-employees with TriNet pursuant to the PEO Agreement. Buyer shall, following the Closing, promptly notify the PEO Employees in writing of its assumption of the PEO Agreement. For a period of not less than 45 days from the Closing Date, Buyer expects to maintain in full force and effect the PEO Agreement and, to the extent permitted by the PEO Agreement and by applicable law, expects TriNet to maintain any employee benefit plans in effect immediately prior to the Closing Date until such time as the PEO Agreement is terminated. If applicable, effective upon the termination of the PEO Agreement, Buyer may elect for some or all of the PEO Employees to become sole employees of Buyer and to participate in the employee benefit plans and programs, if any, on the same basis as similarly situated employees of Buyer.

PEO Employees who continue to be employed by Buyer pursuant to the PEO Agreement and Non-PEO Employees who accept Buyer’s offer of employment and commence employment with Buyer as of the Closing Date shall be referred to as a “Hired Employee” and shall be collectively referred to as the “Hired Employees.” On or prior to the Closing Date, Seller will terminate the employment of the Hired Employees and make all payments to the Hired Employees required under any federal, state, or local Law applicable to Seller, including, without limitation, the payment of accrued wages, bonuses, vacation time, severance or separation pay.
