In no event shall any Contract Employee be assigned or permitted to perform any other duties or functions other than those specified in Exhibit A for Client without the express written consent of AEROTEK. Should Client assign the Contract Employee to perform the duties or functions of a position not listed in Exhibit A or within the job description attached hereto, AEROTEK may, in its sole and absolute discretion, deem this Agreement breached by Client and take whatever action it deems necessary or appropriate. In this event, Client shall be liable to AEROTEK, and indemnify AEROTEK for all claims, damages, losses or expenses relating to such breach, as well as all hours worked by the Contract Employees. Client agrees that it will not permit any Contract Employee to (i) handle cash, negotiable instruments or other valuables without AEROTEK's written consent (and then only under Client's direct supervision), or (ii) transport or convey money, securities or negotiable instruments for Client (including, but not limited to, delivering bank deposits to a bank or other institution). 3.

Overtime will be billed at the rates listed on Exhibit A, or as otherwise agreed by both parties, for hours worked by Contract Employee(s) in excess of forty (40) hours per week, or as otherwise required by law. For weeks that have one (1) National or client observed holiday, overtime rates shall be billed for hours worked in excess of thirty-two (32) hours per week. The number of hours billed by AEROTEK shall be supported by a time card or other time record approved by a representative of the Client.

Late charges shall be calculated using the U.S. Method, therefore interest will not be compounded on the past due balance. If the Client's account is past due or Client has exceeded AEROTEK's established credit limit, AEROTEK shall notify Client verbally or in writing of such occurrence. Upon such notice, AEROTEK may, without additional notice, immediately cease providing any and all further Contract Employee services without any liability to Client for interruption or stoppage of pending work.

EXPENSES: Client shall reimburse AEROTEK for all ordinary, necessary, and reasonable travel expenses incurred by Contract Employee(s) while performing services on behalf of Client that require Contract Employee to travel away from Client's primary job site.

If a purchase order is required pursuant to this Section, Client shall deliver to AEROTEK a written purchase order [NAdays/hours] before the first Contract Employee start date identified on Exhibit A. As stated in Section 15.7 herein, this Agreement and Exhibit A constitute the entire agreement between the parties. If there is any inconsistency or conflicting terms between this Agreement and a client purchase order, this Agreement shall prevail. If a purchase order is required pursuant to this paragraph, failure by Client to deliver said purchase order shall not release Client of its obligations contained in this Agreement. 9. RESTRICTIVE COVENANT: 9.1 RESTRICTIVE COVENANT - CONVERSION: AEROTEK is not an employment agency. Its services are provided at great expense to AEROTEK. In consideration thereof, during the term of this Agreement and for the twelve (12) month period immediately following the period for which a Contract Employee last performed services for the Client under this Agreement, Client shall not, directly or indirectly, for itself, or on behalf of any other person, firm, corporation or other entity, whether as principal, agent, employee, stockholder, partner, member, officer, director, sole proprietor, or otherwise, solicit, participate in or promote the solicitation of such Contract Employee to leave the employ of AEROTEK, or hire or engage such Contract Employee. If any Contract Employee provided by AEROTEK to Client is engaged by Client to perform services, either directly or indirectly, within twelve (12) months of that Contract Employees last day of work at Client through AEROTEK, the Client will pay AEROTEK, as liquidated damages, an amount equal to 30% of the Contract Employee's first year salary, including bonuses, with Client. 9.2 RESTRICTIVE COVENANT — RIGHT TO HIRE: Notwithstanding, the above Section 9.1, if Contract Employee has completed the minimum assignment duration at Client for AEROTEK, pursuant to Exhibit A, there will be no fee for directly hiring the Contract Employee. 9.3. ACCOUNT STATUS: If Client exercises its right to hire a Contract Employee at a time when Client is in breach of Section 5 of this Agreement or Client's account is otherwise not current or in good standing, Client agrees to pay the fee of 30% of the Contract Employee's first year salary, including bonuses with Client, even though the Contract Employee has completed the assignment duration outlined in the attached Exhibit A. 9.4. SUBMITTALS - RIGHT TO HIRE: Resumes submitted to Client are confidential and for Client use only. Client agrees that AEROTEK is the exclusive representative of all candidates for which resumes are submitted to Client by AEROTEK in response to Client requests. Accordingly, Client agrees that if any candidate submitted to Client by AEROTEK is engaged to perform services, either directly or indirectly, by Client within twelve (12) months of receipt of the resume, Client agrees to pay to AEROTEK as liquidated damages an amount equal to 30% of the employee's first year annual salary, including bonuses. 10. CONTRACT EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE: Within the initial employment guarantee period as detailed in the attached Exhibit A from any Contract Employee(s) starting date, Client shall review the Contract Employee's performance and decide whether to continue the engagement of such Contract Employee. If Client is dissatisfied with the performance of the Contract Employee, and Client wishes AEROTEK to terminate its engagement of such Contract Employee, Client must notify AEROTEK within the initial period, specifying the reasons for its dissatisfaction, and Client shall not be required to pay for the hours worked by that Contract Employee during the initial period, provided its reasons for termination are not unlawful and are bona fide in AEROTEK reasonable judgment. If Client becomes dissatisfied with the performance of a Contract Employee after the initial period, Client may request that AEROTEK terminate the engagement of that Contract Employee upon written notice to AEROTEK, but Client shall pay for all hours worked by the terminated Contract Employee from the first hour of work up to and including the date of termination. 11. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: AEROTEK does not warrant or guarantee that the Contract Employee(s) placed pursuant to this Agreement will produce any particular result or any solution to Client's particular needs, or perform services in any particular manner. Accordingly, Client acknowledges and agrees that AEROTEK is not responsible for any aspects of the Contract Employees work or the Client's project, including, without limitation, any deadlines or work product. Because AEROTEK is providing supplemental staffing services only, and Client is directing and supervising the Contract Employees who render these services, AEROTEK shall not be liable (i) for any claims, costs, expenses, damages, obligations or losses arising from or in connection with the acts or omission of any Contract Employee, including, but not limited to, work on engineering or design concepts or calculations or related drawings, software programs, designs or documentation, or (ii) for any indirect, special or consequential damages (including, but not limited to, loss of profits, interest, earnings or use) whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise. Client shall indemnify AEROTEK and hold it harmless against and from any such claims made or brought by third parties, including any and all costs incurred in connection with such claims. 12. CLIENT PROPERTY: 12.1. WORK PRODUCT: All work product of every kind performed by any Contract Employee on behalf of Client shall be the sole and exclusive property of Client. 12.2. DAMAGES: AEROTEK does not provide insurance coverage for any real or personal property of Client, including but not limited to machinery, equipment, computers, tools, vehicles or other real or personal property which is owned or leased by client.
