If Coach, its employees or agents, are reclassified by a state or federal agency or court as Ureeka’s employee, Coach, its employees or agents, as applicable, will become a reclassified employee and will receive no benefits from Ureeka, except those mandated by state or federal law, even if by the terms of Ureeka’s benefit plans or programs of Ureeka in effect at the time of such reclassification, Coach, its employees or agents, as applicable, would otherwise be eligible for such benefits.
