This Agreement shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California. To ensure the timely and economical resolution of disputes that arise in connection with your employment with the Company, we mutually agree that, except as prohibited by law, any and all disputes, claims, or causes of action arising from or relating to the enforcement, breach, performance or interpretation of this Agreement, your employment, or the termination of your employment (including, but not limited to, any claims you may make relating to alleged discrimination or harassment during employment based on race, color, national origin, religion, disability, age, gender or sexual orientation, any claims relating to compensation (wages, bonuses, benefits, etc.) and any claims under federal state, or local laws or regulations relating to terms and conditions of employment), shall be resolved to the fullest extent permitted by law by final, binding and confidential arbitration, by a single arbitrator, conducted by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (JAMS) in the county of Santa Clara, California, under the applicable JAMS employment rules and the Federal Arbitration Act and the Arbitration Rules set forth in the California Code of Civil Procedure, or other arbitrator or arbitration rules to which you and Matterport mutually agree.
By agreeing to this arbitration procedure, both you and the Company waive the right to resolve any such dispute through a trial by jury or judge or administrative proceeding. The arbitrator shall: (a) have the authority to compel adequate discovery for the resolution of the dispute and to award such relief as would otherwise be permitted by law; and (b) issue a written arbitration decision, to include the arbitrators essential findings and conclusions and a statement of the award. The arbitrator shall be authorized to award remedies that you or Matterport would be entitled to seek in a court of law. This Agreement is not intended to prevent you or the Company from obtaining injunctive relief in court to prevent irreparable harm pending the conclusion of such arbitration.
