Relocation Agreement.







U.S. Domestic Relocation Agreement

Date: August 7, 2018
Name: Robert McMahon

I understand and agree that Agilent Technologies, Inc. or any affiliated, subsidiary, or successor employer by which I am employed (“Agilent”) may, in its sole discretion, require that I provide acceptable documentation of some or all of my relocation expenses before reimbursing me for those expenses.

I further understand and agree that Agilent's obligation to make any relocation payment(s) is contingent upon my continued employment with the Company. I acknowledge that all relocation payments made to me or on my behalf during the 12 months following the relocation start date are in the nature of an advance, that is, I have not earned those payments until I have completed one year of employment in the new location. Thus, if I voluntarily terminate my employment prior to the last day of the twelfth month following the relocation start date, I agree to pay back 1/12th of all relocations payments advanced to me for each full month short of twelve.

In the event of involuntary termination arising from a Workforce Management Program (WFM), no reimbursement is required. However, in the event that my employment is involuntarily terminated during the 12 months following the relocation start date for violation of Agilent policies or for performance reasons, I agree to repay Agilent or any subsidiary, affiliate or successor by which I am employed for the relocation costs Agilent advanced to me or on my behalf in accordance with the formula set forth above for voluntary terminations.

I hereby authorize Agilent or the subsidiary, affiliate or successor by which I am employed to withhold from my final paycheck any unearned relocation advance paid to me in accordance with the formula set forth above. I further agree to re-affirm this authorization in writing in the event that my employment is terminated, either voluntarily or involuntarily for reasons other than WFM, during the 12 months following the relocation start date. I understand that my final paycheck will pay me at least the US minimum wage. In the event the amount I owe Agilent or the subsidiary, affiliate or successor by which I am employed is greater than the amount withheld from my final paycheck, I agree to pay the balance in full to Agilent or the subsidiary, affiliate or successor by which I am employed within thirty (30) days of my termination date.

I understand that nothing stated in this letter alters the at-will status of employment.
