6. TERMINATION AND PAYMENTS, BENEFITS ON TERMINATION.
a. Termination by Either Party. Except as set forth in Paragraphs 6(c) (for Cause termination), (e) (termination due to death) and (f) (termination due to disability), and subject to provisions of Paragraph 6(j) (constructive termination or good reason), either Party may terminate the employment relationship with 30 days’ written notice to the other. Both parties may mutually agree to a shorter period.
b. Termination by the Company without Cause. Subject to provisions of Paragraph 6(i) (Change in Control termination), upon 30 days written notice, the Company, in its sole discretion, may terminate Mr. Pollema’s employment without Cause (as “Cause” is defined in Paragraph 6(g)). Constructive Termination by the Company (as the term is defined in Paragraph 6(j)) constitutes Termination without Cause by the Company for purposes of this Agreement. In case of termination pursuant to this Paragraph 6(b), the Employee shall be entitled to:
(i) Severance. If Mr. Pollema executes a separation agreement in a form substantially similar to the agreement set forth in Exhibit B (attached hereto), releasing all legal claims except for those that cannot legally be released and Mr. Pollema continues to comply with all terms of such separation agreement, and any other agreements signed by the Employee with the Company, then the Company shall pay Mr. Pollema severance compensation equal to fifteen (15) full calendar months of Mr. Pollema’s then current Base Salary (“Severance” or “salary continuation”). Salary continuation payments will be made at the Company’s regular payroll intervals, provided, however, payments accruing for payroll periods prior to the date that the Company has received a signed and effective separation agreement and release shall be suspended and paid on the first payroll date following the effective date of the separation and release.
