(ii) Employee and those who aid his in such breach shall be liable for all costs and business loses including any damages and out-of-pocket expenses associated with or resulting from such breach; and
(iii) Employee hereby consents and agrees that TTEC Parent and the Company shall be entitled to seek, in addition to other available remedies, a temporary or permanent injunction or other equitable relief against such breach or threatened breach from any court of competent jurisdiction, without the necessity of showing any actual damages or that money damages would not afford an adequate remedy, and without the necessity of posting any bond or other security. The aforementioned equitable relief shall be in addition to, not in lieu of, legal remedies, monetary damages or other available forms of relief.
a. Relationship between this Agreement and Other Company Agreements. In the event of any direct conflict between any term of this Agreement and any TTEC Parent and/or Company agreement, policy, procedure, guideline or other publication addressing the same terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control Mr. Pollema’s employment.
b. Successors and Assigns. TTEC Parent, the Company, its successors and assigns may in their sole discretion assign this Agreement to any person or entity in connection with the merger, acquisition or other business combination that results in the divestiture or transfer of all or substantially all the assets of the Company or TTEC Parent. This Agreement shall bind, and inure to the benefit of the Company's successors or assigns. This Agreement is for personal services and Mr. Pollema shall not assign his rights or obligations hereunder.
c. IRSC Section 409A.
(i) Interpretation. This Agreement shall be interpreted and administered in a manner so that any amount or benefit payable hereunder shall be paid or provided in a manner that is either exempt from, or complies with, the requirements of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) and the Internal Revenue Service guidance and Treasury Regulations thereunder (collectively, “Section 409A”). It is the Parties’ intention that salary continuation payments under the Agreement will be exempt from the requirements of Section 409A because they are short term deferrals under Treas. Reg. Sec. 1.409A-1(b)(4) or payments under a separation pay plan within the meaning of Treas. Reg. Sec. 1.409A-1(b)(9) and the Agreement shall be construed and administered in a manner consistent with such intent.
(ii) Separation from Service; Separate Payments. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, to the extent that any payment or benefit subject to Section 409A, including an exemption from Section 409A, and such payment or benefit would otherwise be payable or distributable hereunder by reason of Employee’s termination of employment, all references to Mr. Pollema’s “termination of employment” shall be construed to mean a “separation from service,” as defined in Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(h), and Employee shall not be considered to have had a termination of employment unless such termination constitutes a “separation from service” with respect to Employee. If under this Agreement, an amount is to be paid in two or more installments, for purposes of Section 409A, each installment shall be treated as a separate payment.
