Administration of Arbitration. If any dispute is not resolved by informal negotiation, any claim,
dispute, or controversy will be, at the demand of either party, conducted exclusively by binding arbitration
governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and not state law. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT
TO LITIGATE (OR PARTICIPATE IN AS A PARTY OR CLASS MEMBER) ALL DISPUTES IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.
Instead, all disputes will be resolved on an individual basis before a single, neutral arbitrator and the
proceeding will be confidential. The arbitrator will be either a lawyer admitted to practice law in his or
her jurisdiction and with at least ten years’ experience or a retired or former judge selected in
accordance with the rules of the AAA, except in the event of a dispute between an applicant or an employee
and us, the AAA Employment Arbitration Rules would apply. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this
provision, and the arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary
Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the AAA. For more information, see adr.org or call
1-800-778-7879. All arbitration proceedings will be conducted in English, and the United States FAA will
govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to this binding arbitration provision. The
arbitration shall be conducted in the county or parish in which you reside. The award will be confidential
and only disclosed as is necessary to obtain judgment or as otherwise required by law. You and we further
agree that a judgment may be entered upon the award by any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration award
will determine the rights and obligations between the named parties only, and only in respect to the claims
in arbitration, and will not have any bearing on the rights and obligations of any other dispute. In the
event of a conflict between the Arbitration Rules and this provision, this arbitration provision will
Costs. Adecco will bear the expense and fees for the arbitrator and other incidental costs (including
any filing fees or administration fees) that would not be incurred in a court proceeding. Each party shall
otherwise bear the expense of their respective attorneys, experts, and witnesses and other expenses,
regardless of who prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the
arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines.
Severability. If any term or section of this provision is found to be invalid, illegal, or
unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability will not affect any
other term or section of this arbitration provision and will be eliminated to the minimum extent necessary.

other provisions of these Terms; provided, however, that (i) if the prohibition on class-wide arbitration is
deemed invalid, then this entire arbitration provision will be null and void; and (ii) if the prohibition on
arbitration of representative claims brought in a private attorney general capacity is deemed invalid, then
the arbitration provision will be null and void as to such claims only. This arbitration agreement will

OTHER STATE, IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT, YOU AND WE AGREE THAT THERE WILL NOT BE A JURY
TRIAL. YOU AND WE UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY DISPUTE THAT IN ANY WAY RELATES TO
SUCH SERVICES). IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, THIS PARAGRAPH MAY BE FILED TO SHOW A WRITTEN CONSENT TO A TRIAL
GOVERNED BY THE LAWS SET FORTH IN THE “GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION” SECTION BELOW, WITHOUT
REGARD TO THE PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICT OF LAWS.
