JURY TRIAL WAIVER AGREEMENT
The Company hopes that, if you become employed, your experience will be a positive one. We also firmly believe that our internal complaint resolution procedures should be sufficient to resolve any problems that may arise between you and the Company. However, we recognize that sometimes, despite everyone’s best efforts, a matter cannot be resolved internally. In those rare instances, we believe that judges are in the best position to fairly resolve these disputes.
This document is a Jury Trial Waiver Agreement (“Agreement”). In exchange for the Company’s consideration of your application for employment and your actual employment (if hired), you are being asked to sign this Agreement as a condition of being employed by the Company. Because we believe that judges are best suited to resolve disputes between you and Company, if you choose to sign this Agreement, the Company also will waive its right to request or demand a jury trial with respect to any lawsuit between you and the Company.
This Agreement does not prevent you from filing charges with administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the National Labor Relations Board or equivalent state agencies. This Agreement does not take away any of your rights to sue or to seek all of the types of remedies the law allows. It simply provides that a judge will decide any differences that cannot be resolved through the Company’s internal complaint resolution procedures. By signing this Agreement, you waive your right to request or demand a jury trial with respect to any claims under federal or state law (to the extent permitted by the law of the state in which you may be employed) that you may assert against Air Serv Corporation, its affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, successors, assigns, purchasers, and/or its current, former, and future employees, shareholders, officers, directors and agents (“the Company”). This includes, but is not limited to, claims relating in any manner to your application for employment, your employment (and any of its terms or conditions), or your separation from employment with the Company.
You may choose to reject this Agreement. If you choose not to sign this Agreement, you will not be hired (or, if hired, you will not remain employed) by the Company. If you decide not to sign this Agreement today, you may take it with you and you may consult with any attorney of your choosing to discuss this Agreement before signing it. You may take as much time as you want to consider this Agreement, but you will not be considered for an open position until you have submitted a complete application (including this Agreement).
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and the Company and supersedes any prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, related to its subject matter. This Agreement cannot be revoked or modified except by a written agreement, signed by you and the General Counsel of the Company. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create an offer of employment or a contract for a definite term of employment, express or implied, or to alter any at-will employment relationship.
IMPORTANT: BY SIGNING BELOW, I AGREE THAT I HAVE HAD AS MUCH TIME AS I WANTED TO CONSIDER THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT I UNDERSTAND I AM GIVING UP AND WAIVING MY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL KNOWINGLY, INTELLIGENTLY, VOLUNTARILY, AND FREE FROM DURESS OR COERCION.
