(ii)  Continuation of Benefits. In addition to Severance, the Company shall continue to provide to Employee and to the Employee’s eligible dependents with the same level of welfare and health benefits, including without limitation medical, dental, vision, accident, disability, life insurance, and other welfare benefits in place prior to termination of employment for a period of twelve (12) months after the effective date of such termination, on substantially the same terms and conditions (including contributions required by the Employee for such benefits) as existed immediately prior to termination; provided that, if Employee cannot continue to participate in the Company’s, TTEC Parent’s or successor’s benefit plans, TTEC Parent or successor shall otherwise provide such benefits on the same after-tax basis as if continued participation had been permitted.


(iii)  Equity Vesting. Notwithstanding the vesting schedules contained in Equity Agreements that Mr. Pollema currently holds or would hold, any unvested equity awards that would otherwise vest on or after the termination date shall automatically forfeit.


If the Company terminates this Agreement without Cause  under this Paragraph  6(b), and the Company pays Mr. Pollema the compensation earned as of the effective date of the termination, and provides Mr. Pollema incremental compensation and continuation of benefits on the terms specified in this Paragraph 6(b), the Company’s acts in doing so shall be in complete accord and satisfaction of any claim that Mr. Pollema has or may at any time have for compensation, benefits or payments of any kind from the Company or TTEC Parent arising from or relating in whole or part to Mr. Pollema's employment with the Company and/or this Agreement. If the separation agreement and legal release referenced above is not signed within thirty (30) days from the date that such agreement is presented to Mr. Pollema (which the Company shall present no later than fifteen (15) days after the effective date of Employee’s termination), then Mr. Pollema waives his right to receive any severance compensation pursuant to this Agreement, even if Mr. Pollema were to successfully litigate any claim against the Company and/or TTEC Parent.


c.   Termination by the Company for CauseThe Company may terminate this Agreement with no notice for Cause, as that term is defined in Paragraph 6(g), with the Company's only obligation being the payment of any salary and compensation earned as of the date of termination, and any continuing obligations under the Company benefit plans then in effect, and without liability for severance compensation of any kind, including Severance set forth in Paragraph 6(b).


d.   Termination by Employee. Mr. Pollema is not entitled to severance compensation if he terminates his employment with the Company for any reason. Termination by Employee for “Good Reason” (as the term is defined in Paragraph 6(j)) shall constitute Termination without Cause by the Company for purposes of this Agreement.


e.   Termination upon Employee’s Death.  This Agreement shall terminate immediately upon Employee’s death.  Thereafter, the Company shall pay to the Employee’s estate all compensation fully earned, and benefits fully vested as of the last date of Employee’s continuous, full-time active employment with the Company.  For purposes of this Agreement, continuous, full-time active employment shall be defined as the last date upon which Employee continuously performed his job responsibilities on a regular, full-time basis consisting of at least 35 hours per week, and in the usual course of the Company’s business (“Continuous Full-Time Active Employment”).  In case of Employee’s death, the Company shall not be required to pay any form of severance or other compensation concerning or on account of the Employee’s employment with the Company or the termination thereof.
