Dispute Resolution

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.

Binding Arbitration

If the Parties are unable to resolve a any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Site, use of the Site, these Terms of Use and/or the Privacy Policy (each a “Dispute”) through informal negotiations, you and Shiftgig agree that the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) shall be settled by binding arbitration to be held in Chicago, Illinois in accordance with the rules then in effect of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator may grant injunctions or other relief in such dispute or controversy. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final, conclusive and binding on the parties to the arbitration. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s decision in any court having jurisdiction. To the extent permitted by law, Shiftgig shall pay the administrative fees associated with the arbitration, except for the first $300.00 in administrative fees for any arbitration that is initiated by me, and each of us shall separately pay our counsel fees and expenses. The arbitrator shall apply Illinois law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by the American Arbitration Association, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Shiftgig shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. BY AGREEING TO THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES AS SET FORTH HEREIN, YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND LIMITING YOUR RIGHT TO APPEAL AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO OTHER AVAILABLE RESOLUTION PROCESSES, SUCH AS A COURT ACTION. DO NOT USE THIS SITE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE FOREGOING BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISIONS.

Class Action Waiver

The parties agree to bring any dispute in arbitration only on their own behalf, and not on a class or collective actions basis. Accordingly:

There will be no right or authority for any dispute to be brought, heard or arbitrated as a class or collective action (“Class Action Waiver”).  The Class Action Waiver shall not be severable from this Arbitration Provision in any case in which: (a) the dispute is filed as a class and/or collective action and (b) a civil court of competent jurisdiction (subject to appeals if any to an appellate court) finds the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable.  In such instances, the class and/or collective action must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction.  

Notwithstanding any other clause or language in this document, Arbitration Provision and/or any rules or procedures that might otherwise apply by virtue of this document or by virtue of any arbitration organization rules or procedures that now apply or any amendments and/or modifications to those rules, any claim that the Class Action Waiver or any portion of the Class Action Waiver, is unenforceable, inapplicable, unconscionable, or void or voidable, shall be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.

The Class Action Waiver and any other provision of this Arbitration Provision shall be severable in any case in which the dispute is filed as an individual (non-class and non-collective) action and severance is necessary to ensure that the action proceeds in arbitration.
