Choice of Law. Except to the extent governed by applicable federal law, the validity, interpretation, construction and performance of the Plan and each Award Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law rules.
18.10 Section 409A of the Code. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Plan, to the extent any Award payable in connection with a Participant's Separation from Service constitutes deferred compensation subject to (and not exempt from) Section 409A of the Code
and (ii) the Participant is deemed at the time of such separation to be a “specified employee" under Section 409A of the Code and the Treasury regulations thereunder, then payment shall not be made or commence until the earlier of (i) six (6)-months after such Separation from Service or (ii) the date of the Participant’s death following such Separation from Service; provided, however, that such delay shall only be effected to the extent required to avoid adverse tax treatment to the Participant, including (without limitation) the additional twenty percent (20%) tax for which the Participant would otherwise be liable under Section 409A(a)(1)(B) of the Code in the absence of such delay. Upon the expiration of the applicable delay period, any payment which would have otherwise been paid during that period (whether in a single sum or in installments) in the absence of this paragraph shall be paid to the Participant or the Participant’s beneficiary in one lump sum on the first business day immediately following such delay.
