2. Preservation of Rights. The foregoing general waiver and release does not cover claims that cannot be waived as a matter of law. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Release or the Agreement: (i) Releasors right to file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, National Labor Relations Board, or similar state agencies is expressly preserved, provided, however, that if Releasor files such a claim, he expressly waives the right to recover and shall not accept monetary damages, costs, attorneys fees or any other relief personal to him in connection with such claim; (ii) Releasor retains the right to participate in any investigation by any government agency charged with enforcement of any law; and (iii) Releasor retains the right to engage in concerted activity protected by Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act. Further, notwithstanding the foregoing general waiver and release, you are not releasing your rights and claims to vested benefits, including, but not limited to, vested benefits under the Stock Option Documents (as defined in the January 9, 2020 letter agreement), your rights and claims to indemnification and defense, if any. For the avoidance of doubt, your general waiver and release does not cover any rights and claims you may have against any of the Companys insurance carriers including, but not limited to, the insurance carriers for the Companys short term and long term disability plans and policies.
