16. Dispute Resolution
16.1. Informal Resolution. Before filing a claim against HR Central,
you agree to try to resolve the dispute by first emailing [email protected]
with a description of your claim. We'll
try to resolve the dispute informally by following up via email, phone or other
methods. If we can’t resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days of our receipt
of your first email, you or HR Central may then bring a formal proceeding.
16.2. Arbitration Agreement. You and HR Central
agree to resolve any claims arising from or relating to the Services or this
Agreement through final and binding arbitration and you and HR Central expressly
waive trial by jury, except as set forth below. Discovery and rights to appeal
in arbitration are generally more limited than in a lawsuit, and other rights
that you and we would have in court may not be available in arbitration. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an
arbitration award is limited.
16.3. Arbitration Opt-Out. You can decline
(30) days of the date that you first agree to this Agreement (“Opt-Out
Period”). Your email must be sent from the email address you use for your
Account, and must include your full name, residential address and a clear
statement that you want to opt out of arbitration. If you opt out of
arbitration pursuant to this Section 16.3, then Sections 16.2, 16.4, 16.5 and
16.6 of these Terms do not apply to you. This opt-out doesn’t affect any other
sections of the Terms, including without limitation Sections 16.8 (Judicial
Forum For Disputes; Time For Filing), 16.9 (No Class Actions) and 17.2
16.4. Arbitration Time For Filing. Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a
demand for arbitration within one year after the date the party asserting the
claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default
giving rise to the claim. If applicable law prohibits a one year limitation
period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest
time period permitted by applicable law.
16.5. Arbitration Procedures. JAMS, Inc. (“JAMS”) will administer the
arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules &
Procedures (“JAMS Rules”)
in effect at the time of the dispute. You and Job Nexus agree that this
Agreement affects interstate commerce, so the US Federal Arbitration Act and
federal arbitration law apply and govern the interpretation and enforcement of
these provisions (despite the choice of law provision below). Any arbitration
hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Florida, in
English, and shall be settled by one commercial arbitrator with substantial
experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes,
who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in
accordance with the JAMS Rules. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement and
can award the same damages and relief as a court (including without limitation
reasonable attorneys' fees and costs), except that the arbitrator may not award
declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the
arbitration. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered
in any court of competent jurisdiction.
16.6. Arbitration Fees. The JAMS Rules will govern payment of
all arbitration fees. We won’t seek our attorneys’ fees and costs in
arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
16.7. Exceptions To Arbitration Agreement. Either you or HR Central may assert
claims, if they qualify, in small claims court. Either you or HR Central may
bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse
of the Services, or intellectual property infringement or misappropriation (for
example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first
engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process described
16.8. Judicial Forum For Disputes; Time For
Filing. If our agreement to
arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, or if you opt out of
arbitration pursuant to Section 16.3, you and HR Central agree that any judicial
proceeding (other than small claims actions) must be brought exclusively in the
federal or state courts of Florida and you and HR Central consent to venue and
personal jurisdiction in those courts. Any claim not subject to arbitration
must be commenced within one year after the date the party asserting the claim
first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving
rise to the claim. If applicable law prohibits a one year limitation period for
asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period
permitted by applicable law.
16.9. NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis,
and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class,
consolidated or representative action. Class actions, class arbitrations,
private attorney general actions and consolidation with other arbitrations
17. Additional Terms
17.1. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire
agreement between you and HR Central regarding the subject matter of this
Agreement, and supersedes and replaces any other prior or contemporaneous
agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of this
Agreement. This Agreement creates no third party beneficiary rights.
17.2. Controlling Law. This Agreement and the Services shall be
governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to
its conflict of law provisions.
17.3. Waiver, Severability And Assignment. Our failure to enforce any provision of
this Agreement is not a waiver of our right to do so later. If any provision of
this Agreement is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in
full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent
as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under this
Agreement, and any such attempt will be void. We may assign our rights under
this Agreement to any of our affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in
interest of any business associated with the Services.
17.4. Modifications. We may modify this
Agreement from time to time, and will always post the most current version on
our site. If a modification meaningfully reduces your rights, we’ll notify you
(by, for example, sending you an email or displaying a prominent notice within
the Services). The notice will designate a reasonable period after which the
new terms will take effect. Modifications will never apply retroactively. By
continuing to use or access the Services after any modifications come into
effect, you agree to be bound by the modified Agreement. If you disagree with
our changes, then you should stop using the Services.
17.5. Translation. This Agreement was originally written in
English (US). We may translate this Agreement into other languages. In the
event of a conflict between a translated version and the English version, the
