TRANSITION AGREEMENT
This Transition Agreement (“Transition Agreement”) is made by and between Barbara Scherer (“Executive”) and Plantronics, Inc. (the “Company”) collectively referred to as the “Parties,” as of February 27, 2012 (the “Transition Period Commencement Date”):
RECITALS
WHEREAS, Executive is employed by the Company as Senior Vice President, Finance & Administration and Chief Financial Officer pursuant to the terms of an employment agreement between Executive and the Company dated March 1997 and a Change of Control Severance Agreement between Executive and the Company dated on or about January 26, 2009;
WHEREAS, Executive will be stepping down from her role as Senior Vice President, Finance & Administration and Chief Financial Officer effective upon her successor commencing employment with the Company (the date on which her successor commences employment with the Company referred to as the “Successor Commencement Date”);
WHEREAS, the Company desires to have Executive remain employed following the hiring of her successor to help her successor transition into Executive's role;
WHEREAS, if Executive remains employed with the Company through the date that is four (4) weeks following the date her successor is hired (the “Expected Termination Date”), then Executive will be entitled to the severance benefits set forth in Section 2 below, subject to Executive executing and not revoking the Supplemental Separation Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit A, in accordance with the terms below; and
WHEREAS, the Parties, and each of them, wish to set forth the terms of Executive's continued employment through her separation from the Company and to resolve any and all disputes, claims, complaints, grievances, charges, actions, petitions and demands that Executive may have against the Company as defined herein.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises made herein, the Parties hereby agree as follows:

COVENANTS

1.Transition; Termination Date; Employment Status; Acknowledgements.

(a)Transition. From the Transition Period Commencement Date through the Actual Termination Date (the “Transition Period”), the Parties agree that Executive will continue to be employed pursuant to the current terms of her employment, as amended by this Transition Agreement. Prior to the Successor Commencement Date, Executive will continue in her role as Senior Vice President, Finance & Administration and Chief Financial Officer on a full-time basis, reporting to Ken Kannappan, President and Chief Executive Officer. On the Successor Commencement Date, Executive agrees to resign from all officer positions she then holds with the Company. Following the Successor Commencement Date and during the remainder of the Transition Period, Executive shall engage in activities relating to the transition of her duties as Senior Vice President, Finance & Administration and Chief Financial Officer to her successor, reporting to Ken Kannappan, President and Chief Executive Officer.

(b)Termination Date. Executive's termination date will occur on the Expected Termination Date, or earlier as provided in Section 1(c) (the date of Executive's actual termination of employment with the Company, the “Actual Termination Date”).

(c)Employment Status. Executive is free to terminate her employment at any time prior to the Expected Termination Date, for any reason or for no reason. Similarly, the Company is free to terminate Executive's employment at any time prior to the Expected Termination Date, for any reason or for no reason. As described in Section 2, Executive may be entitled to severance benefits depending on the circumstances of Executive's termination of employment with the Company.






2.Severance. If Executive remains employed with the Company through the Expected Termination Date, or, if prior to the Expected Termination Date, Executive's employment with the Company is terminated by the Company other than for Cause or as a result of Executive's death or Disability, then, subject to Executive executing and not revoking the Supplemental Separation Agreement, which must become effective and irrevocable no later than the sixtieth (60th) day following the Actual Termination Date (the “Supplemental Release Deadline”), Executive will receive the following:

(a)A lump sum payment of $375,000, less applicable withholdings, payable within fifteen (15) calendar days following the effective date of the Supplemental Release Agreement;

(b)If bonus amounts pursuant to the Company's 2012 Executive Incentive Plan have yet to be paid as of the Actual Termination Date, a lump sum payment, less applicable withholdings, equal to the bonus Executive would have otherwise received assuming she remained employed through the end of the Company's 2012 fiscal year, which will be paid at the same time as bonuses are paid to other senior executives of the Company, but in no event prior to the date of the Supplemental Release Agreement becomes effective and irrevocable. For purposes of this calculation, the Compensation Committee may not exercise negative discretion to reduce Executive's bonus, which will be determined solely on actual achievement against objectively determinable, pre-established performance objectives;

(c)If the Successor Commencement Date occurs subsequent to March 31, 2012, a pro rata portion of Executive's annual bonus applicable for the Company's 2013 fiscal year based on an annual target bonus opportunity of $243,750 and bonus pool funding levels (but in no event to exceed 100% of funding levels) determined by achievement of corporate goals as of the Successor Commencement Date, as reasonably estimated by the Company in good faith (the “Estimated Annual Bonus”). The actual amount to be paid to Executive will be determined by multiplying (x) the Estimated Annual Bonus by (y) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days that have passed since the commencement of the 2013 fiscal year through the Successor Commencement Date and the denominator of which is 365, payable within fifteen (15) calendar days following the effective date of the Supplemental Release Agreement.

(d)Executive's outstanding equity awards will vest as to the number of shares subject to such awards that would have otherwise vested through the Actual Termination Date as if the equity awards were vesting on the monthly anniversary of the vesting commencement date applicable to each such award as to a pro-rata number of shares based on the length of the term of the original vesting schedule, less the number of shares subject to such awards that have previously vested pursuant to the awards' respective original vesting schedules.

By way of example only, if Executive had been granted an award of 4,800 shares of restricted stock on January 1, 2010, which vested as to 1,200 shares on January 1 of 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, respectively, then assuming the Actual Termination Date is June 1, 2012, then, subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, the restricted stock award would vest as to an additional 500 shares (that is, the restricted stock award will be considered to have vested as to 100 shares on the first day of each calendar month following the vesting commencement date applicable to such award).

(e)The Company will provide Executive a lump sum payment, within fifteen (15) calendar days following the effective date of the Supplemental Separation Agreement, in an amount equal to 150% of: (A) the monthly premium that Executive would be required to pay to continue Executive's group plan coverage under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, as amended (“COBRA”) at the rates in effect on the date of the Actual Termination Date, multiplied by (B) twelve (12), which payment will be made regardless of whether Executive elects COBRA continuation coverage.

(f)Executive will be eligible to receive Company-paid Exec-U-Care benefits through the one-year anniversary of the Actual Termination Date, in accordance with the terms of the Exec-U-Care plan, and subject to continued tax-qualified status of the Exec-U-Care plan. Executive agrees and acknowledges that if continued participation of Executive in the Exec-U-Care plan would result in the plan being disqualified for favorable tax treatment, as determined by the Company in its sole discretion, that Executive will not be permitted to continue participation in the plan will receive no consideration whatsoever as a result of not being permitted to continue participation in the plan.

(g)If the Supplemental Separation Agreement does not become effective and irrevocable by the Supplemental Release Deadline, Executive will forfeit any right to severance payments or benefits under this Transition Agreement. In no event will severance payments or benefits be paid or provided until the Supplemental Separation Agreement actually becomes effective and irrevocable. Any severance payments that would have been made to Executive prior to the Supplemental Separation Agreement becoming effective and irrevocable will be paid to Executive no later than the first Company payroll date on or following the Supplemental Release Deadline and the remaining payments will be made as provided in this Transition Agreement.






(h)For avoidance of doubt, if Executive resigns from or otherwise voluntarily terminates her employment with the Company for any reason prior to the Expected Termination Date, she will not be entitled to any severance payments pursuant to this Section 2 or otherwise.

(i)For purposes of this Transition Agreement, “Cause” will mean Executive's termination only upon: (i) Executive's willful failure, after receipt of at least one written warning, (A) to comply with the Company's policies and practices applicable to the Company's employees in similar job positions or to the Company's employees generally or (B) to follow the reasonable instructions of Executive's supervisor; (ii) Executive's engaging in willful misconduct which is demonstrably and materially injurious to the Company; (iii) Executive's committing a felony, an act of fraud against, or the misappropriation of property belonging to the Company; or (iv) Executive's breaching in any material respect the terms of this Transition Agreement or the Employee Patent, Secrecy and Invention Agreement between Executive and the Company.

(j)For purposes of this Transition Agreement, “Disability” will mean that Executive is unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than twelve (12) months. Termination resulting from Disability may only be effected after at least thirty (30) days' written notice by the Company of its intention to terminate Executive's employment. In the event that Executive resumes the performance of substantially all of her duties hereunder before the termination of her employment becomes effective, the notice of intent to terminate will automatically be deemed to have been revoked.

3.Salary & Other Compensation Acknowledgements. Executive acknowledges and represents that the Company has paid Executive all salary, wages, bonuses, commissions and any and all other compensation and benefits (in cash, equity or otherwise) due to Executive through the date hereof, except for Executive's accrued vacation, which will continue to remain outstanding and will be paid upon the Actual Termination Date, and Executive's outstanding equity awards as set forth on Exhibit B, which will continue to governed by their applicable terms (including vesting) following the date hereof. For avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 3 is intended to reduce the payments the Company is required to pay Executive as provided under Sections 1 through 2 of this Agreement.

4.Release of Claims. Executive hereby fully, forever, irrevocably and unconditionally releases and discharges the Company, its current and former officers, directors, stockholders, corporate affiliates, subsidiaries, insurers, parent companies, successors and assigns, agents and employees (each in their individual and corporate capacities) (hereinafter the “Released Parties”) from any and all claims, charges, complaints, demands, causes of action, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys' fees and costs), of every kind and nature that Executive ever had or now has against the Released Parties, including, but not limited to, all employment discrimination claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq., the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, 42 U.S.C. § 12101 et seq., the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. § 701 et seq., Family and Medical Leave Act, 29 U.S.C. § 2601 et seq., the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, Cal. Gov't Code § 12900 et seq., the California Family Rights Act, Cal. Gov't Code § 12945.2 and § 19702.3, the California Equal Pay Law, Cal. Labor Code § 1197.5 et seq., the California Unruh Civil Rights Act, Cal. Civil Code § 51 et seq. and the California Family and Medical Leave Law, Cal. Labor Code §§ 233, 7291.16 and 7291.2, all as amended, and all claims arising out of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq. and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), 29 U.S.C. § 1001 et seq., all as amended, and all common law claims including, but not limited to, actions in tort, defamation and breach of contract, including, but not limited to, any claim or damage arising out of Executive's employment with and/or separation from the Company (including a claim for retaliation) under any common law theory or any federal, state or local statute or ordinance not expressly referenced above, and claims for wrongful discharge, breach of contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, violation of public policy, defamation, fraud, personal injury, and emotional distress; provided, however, that nothing in Transition Agreement prevents Executive from bringing any claims relating to the validity of this Transition Agreement, or from filing, cooperating with, or participating in any proceeding before the EEOC or a state Fair Employment Practices Agency (except that Executive acknowledges that she may not be able to recover any monetary benefits in connection with any such claim, charge or proceeding) or from bringing any rights or claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (29 U.S.C. § 621 et seq.) that may arise after the date this Transition Agreement is signed. The only exceptions to this release are any claim(s) Executive may have for:

(a)
unemployment benefits pursuant to the terms of applicable law (to the extent available to Executive under applicable law);

(b)

(e)

(f)
any claims that, as a matter of applicable law, are not waivable.

5.Waiver of Unknown Claims. Executive understands and agrees that the claims released in Section 3 above include not only claims presently known to Executive, but also include all unknown or unanticipated claims, rights, demands, actions, obligations, liabilities, and causes of action of every kind and character that would otherwise come within the scope of the released claims as described in Section 3. Executive understands that she may hereafter discover facts different from what she now believes to be true, which if known, could have materially affected this Transition Agreement, but Executive nevertheless waives any claims or rights based on different or additional facts. Executive knowingly and voluntarily waives any and all rights or benefits that she may now have, or in the future may have, under the terms of Section 1542 of the Civil Code of the State of California, which provides as follows:

A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH A CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OF OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.
6.Confidential Information and Non-Solicitation.

The Confidentiality Agreement is incorporated herein by this reference, and Executive agrees to continue to be bound by the terms of that Confidentiality Agreement.

7.Acknowledgments and Right to Revoke. Executive acknowledges that she has been given twenty-one (21) days after receipt of this Transition Agreement to consider this Transition Agreement. By signing this Transition Agreement, Executive acknowledges that she was offered a period of at least twenty-one (21) days to consider the terms of this Transition Agreement but, to the extent not taken, Executive chooses to waive this consideration period. If Executive does not accept this Transition Agreement within that time, it will become null and void. Executive is advised to consult with an attorney prior to executing this Transition Agreement. Executive represents and agrees that she fully understands her right to discuss all aspects of this Transition Agreement with her private attorney, that she has availed herself of this right, that she has carefully read and fully understands all of the provisions of this Transition Agreement, and that she is voluntarily entering into this Transition Agreement. Executive understands and agrees that the waiver of rights contained in this Transition Agreement is only an exchange for the consideration specified herein, and that she would not otherwise be entitled to such consideration. Once Executive has signed the Transition Agreement, Executive can revoke her acceptance within seven (7) days by so notifying Pat Wadors, Human Resources, 345 Encinal Street, Santa Cruz, California 95060.

11.Waiver of Rights. No delay or omission by the Company in exercising any right under this Transition Agreement shall operate as a waiver of that or any other right. A waiver or consent given by the Company on any one occasion shall be effective only in that instance and shall not be construed as a bar to or waiver of any right on any other occasion.

12.Severability. If any provision in this Transition Agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, it shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law.

13.Confidentiality. Executive understands and agrees that as a condition for payment to Executive of the benefits herein described, the terms and contents of this Transition Agreement, and the contents of the negotiations and discussions resulting in this Transition Agreement, shall be maintained as confidential by Executive, her spouse, her attorney or her accountant, and shall not be disclosed except to the extent required by law or as otherwise agreed to in writing by the Company.

18.Entire Agreement.

19.Arbitration. The Parties agree that any and all disputes arising out of the terms of this Transition Agreement and their interpretation, and any of the matters released, shall be subject to final and binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association under its National Rules for the Resolution of Employment Disputes in Santa Cruz County, California. THE PARTIES HEREBY AGREE TO WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THEM RESOLVED IN A COURT OF LAW BY A JUDGE OR JURY.
