Information on currently available benefit programs will be provided to you shortly after your start date. You should note that the Company may modify job titles, salaries and benefits from time to time as it deems necessary.


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and state and local shelter orders, while employed by the Company, it is expected that you will initially work remotely from your home until such time as the Company determines it can re-open its offices. The Company may provide you with additional guidelines and policies related to working from home under separate cover.


Please note that your employment with the Company is for no specified period and constitutes At-Will employment. As a result, you are free to resign at any time, for any reason or for no reason.

We request that, in the event of resignation, you give the Company at least two weeks’ notice.


The Company may conduct background investigations and/or reference checks on all of its potential employees. Your job offer, therefore, is contingent upon favorable results of a background investigation and/or reference checks, if any. In accordance with federal immigration law, all Company employees must provide documentary evidence of their identity and eligibility for employment in the United States. Such documentation must be provided to us within three (3) business days of your date of hire, or our employment relationship with you may be terminated.


We request that you disclose to the Company any and all agreements relating to your prior employment that may affect your eligibility to be employed by the Company or limit the manner in which you may be employed. It is the Company’s understanding that any such agreements will not prevent you from performing the duties of your position and you represent that such is the case. Moreover, you agree that, during the term of your employment with the Company, you will not engage in any other employment, occupation, consulting or other business activity directly related to the business in which the Company is now involved or becomes involved during the term of your employment, nor will you engage in any other activities that conflict with your obligations to the Company. Similarly, you agree not to bring any third-party confidential information to the Company, including that of your former employer, and that in performing your duties for the Company you will not in any way utilize any such information.







As a Company employee, you will be expected to abide by the Company’s rules and standards, to include the Company’s requirement that you acknowledge that you have read and that you understand the Company’s rules of conduct which are included in the Company Handbook, which the Company will provide to you under separate cover.

Please note that we must receive your signed Confidentiality Agreement before your employment can be validated.


To accept the Company’s offer, please sign and date this letter in the space provided below. A duplicate original is enclosed for your records.
