On September 26, 2008, AmCOMP Incorporated (the “Company”) entered into the First Amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Employment Agreement, dated as of January 5, 2007 (the “Employment Agreement”), by and between the Company and George Harris, Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary. The Amendment provides notice that upon closing of the merger contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of January 10, 2008, as amended, by and among the Company, Employers Holdings, Inc. and Sapphire Acquisition Corp., Mr. Harris’s Employment Agreement will terminate effective as of December 31, 2008. Mr. Harris has agreed to serve as a consultant to the Company for up to six months following the termination of his employment. Under the Amendment, Mr. Harris’s termination will entitle him to the severance payments and benefits described in his Employment Agreement for a period of 30 months. In consideration of Mr. Harris’s agreement to serve as a consultant, the Amendment provides that Mr. Harris will have no duty to mitigate any damages that he may incur by reason of the termination of his employment under certain circumstances and, consequently, he will be entitled to receive the aforementioned severance payments and benefits regardless of any income that he may receive from other sources following the date that he becomes entitled to receive such severance payments and benefits.
The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
