(* This last optional provision can serve as a variety of “sign-up bonus”, which by virtue of that and the following sentences is transformed into a loan that can be recouped by proper drafting of a repayment schedule. The repayment schedule should specifically set out the intervals at which differing amounts of the loan will be repayable and should include the event of the employee staying with the company a desired minimum amount of time. The overall effect of these “loan provisions” is to supply a financial incentive to the employee to achieve at least a minimum tenure with the company.)
