Other Severance Benefits Executive hereby agrees that in consideration for the payments to be received under Section 7(b) of this Agreement, Executive waives any and all rights to any payments or benefits under any severance plans or arrangements of the Company or their respective affiliates that specifically provide for severance payments, other than the Change in Control Severance Agreement between the Company and Executive (the “Change in Control Severance Agreement”); provided that any payments payable to Executive under Section 7(b) hereof shall be offset by any payments payable under the Change in Control Severance Agreement.
Right to Severance Benefits The Executive shall be entitled to receive from the Company Severance Benefits, as described in Section 3.3 herein, if there has been a Change in Control of the Company and if, within twenty-four (24) calendar months following the Change in Control, a Qualifying Termination of the Executive has occurred. The Executive shall not be entitled to receive Severance Benefits if he/she is terminated for Cause, or if his/her employment with the Company ends due to death, Disability, or Retirement or due to a voluntary termination of employment by the Executive without Good Reason.
Change in Control Severance Benefits In the event that the Company (or any surviving or acquiring corporation) terminates Employee’s employment without Just Cause or Employee resigns for Good Reason within one (1) month prior to or twelve (12) months following the effective date of a Change in Control (“Change in Control Termination”), and upon the execution of a Release, Employee shall be entitled to receive the following Change in Control severance benefits: (i) a lump-sum cash payment in an amount equal to (A) Employee’s annual base salary then in effect, plus (B) the greater of (1) Employee’s annualized target bonus award for the year in which Employee’s employment terminates or (2) the Annual Bonus amount paid to Employee in the immediately preceding year; (ii) payment of any accrued but unused vacation and sick leave; (iii) payment of Employee’s target bonus award for the year in which Employee’s employment terminates, prorated through the date of the Change in Control Termination; (iv) the Company (or any surviving or acquiring corporation) shall pay the premiums of Employee’s group health insurance COBRA continuation coverage, including coverage for Employee’s eligible dependents, for a maximum period of twelve (12) months following a Change in Control Termination; and (v) the Company (or any surviving or acquiring corporation) shall pay the costs of outplacement assistance services from an outplacement agency selected by Employee for a period of six (6) months following a Change in Control Termination, up to maximum of $7,500 in aggregate; provided, however, that (a) the Company (or any surviving or acquiring corporation) shall pay premiums for Employee’s eligible dependents only for coverage for which those eligible dependents were enrolled immediately prior to the Change in Control Termination and (b) the Company’s (or any surviving or acquiring corporation’s) obligation to pay such premiums shall cease immediately upon Employee’s eligibility for comparable group health insurance provided by a new employer of Employee. Employee agrees that the Company’s (or any surviving or acquiring corporation’s) payment of health insurance premiums will satisfy its obligations under COBRA for the period provided. No insurance premium payments will be made following the effective date of Employee’s coverage by a health insurance plan of a subsequent employer. For the balance of the period that Employee is entitled to coverage under federal COBRA law, if any, Employee shall be entitled to maintain such coverage at Employee’s own expense.In addition, notwithstanding anything contained in Employee’s stock option or other equity award agreements to the contrary, in the event the Company (or any surviving or acquiring corporation) terminates Employee’s employment without Just Cause or Employee resigns for Good Reason within one (1) month prior to or twelve (12) months following the effective date of a Change in Control, and any surviving corporation or acquiring corporation assumes Employee’s stock options and/or equity awards, as applicable, or substitutes similar stock options or equity awards for Employee’s stock options and/or equity awards, as applicable, in accordance with the terms of the Company’s equity incentive plans, then (i) the vesting of all of Employee’s stock options and/or equity awards (or any substitute stock options or equity awards), as applicable, shall be accelerated in full and (ii) the term and the period during which Employee’s stock options may be exercised shall be extended to twelve (12) months after the date of Employee’s termination of employment; provided, that, in no event shall such options be exercisable after the expiration date of such options as set forth in the stock option grant notice and/or agreement evidencing such options.
Severance Pay Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 61, Severance Pay, of this Agreement, where the period of continuous employment in respect of which severance benefit is to be paid consists of both full- and part-time employment or varying levels of part-time employment, the benefit shall be calculated as follows: the period of continuous employment eligible for severance pay shall be established and the part-time portions shall be consolidated to equivalent full-time. The equivalent full-time period in years shall be multiplied by the full-time weekly pay rate for the appropriate group and level to produce the severance pay benefit.
