RECRUITMENT PLATFORM. JOBILITY, Inc. (“JOBILITY”) provides Users with a
fully automated recruitment process through JOBILITY’s Web Site and Mobile
Applications (hereinafter, the “Platform”) by matching and enabling the connection between persons
seeking to obtain services (the “Hirer(s)”) and/or individuals seeking
to provide services (“You” or the “Gigee(s)”).
Hirers and Gigees may also be generally referred to as “Users.” Your use
of the Platform and the JOBILITY Web Site and Mobile Application is the “Service”
provided to You by JOBILITY. Those certain services or assignment(s) requested
by the Hirer through the Platform, which are to be completed by a Gigee, are
hereinafter referred to as “Gig(s).”
The provision and performance of all Gigs is solely up to the Gigee(s),
scheduled to perform said Gigs by the Hirer through use of the Platform.
- How JOBILITY Works. Hirers sign up for the
Service through the Hirer Web Application Registration Page on the Platform.
Gigees sign up for the Service through the Gigee Web Application Registration
Page or through the Gigee Mobile Application Registration Page. Once signed up,
Hirers are permitted to post Gigs including industry, Gig title, required
skills/experience/certifications, location, and desired hourly rate. In order
to be matched Gigees are required to submit to a Basic Background Check and
upload the following information into the Platform: the industry and type of
Gig they would like to work, their availability, the minimum hourly rate they
desire, and the distance they are willing to travel for a Gig. JOBILITY will
then pair vetted, qualified Gigees to Gigs that suit their location,
availability, and experience. If the Gigee’s availability matches a Hirer’s Gig
details, they will be matched in JOBILITY’s system and the Gigee will be given the
option to apply for the Gig. The Hirer will then have the option to accept or
decline the Gigee. If the Hirer accepts the Gigee, the Hirer will be required
to remit payment for a JOBILITY Service Fee and a Gigee Fee to a third party
payment service provider’s account directly in accordance with these Terms. The
Gigee will be required to use the Platform to mark the Gig as “started” when
the Gig commences and “completed” upon conclusion of the Gig. Upon completion
of the Gig and the Hirer will then be required to “approve” that the Gig was
completed, and allow JOBILITY to initiate payment to the Gigee and JOBILITY in
accordance with these Terms.
- JOBILITY, THROUGH THE PLATFORM, OFFERS GIGEES
INFORMATION AND A METHOD TO APPLY FOR AND OBTAIN SUCH GIGS. JOBILITY DOES NOT

Unless You and JOBILITY otherwise agree, the arbitrator appointed to decide disputes may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims against JOBILITY and may not otherwise preside over any form.
IMPORTANT: Your agreement to bring claims against JOBILITY in an individual basis and through arbitration, rather than through a court or trial by jury, is binding unless You opt out of this arbitration provision in accordance with the Terms. It is the intention of You and JOBILITY that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., and the applicable AAA Rules (as set forth below) apply to any dispute arising out of these Terms (including but not limited to their construction, interpretation, enforceability, or termination) or your relationship with JOBILITY, or any dispute arising out of your relationship with a Hirer who engaged You for Gigs through the JOBILITY Web Site, Platform, or Mobile Application in which You or the Hirer allege JOBILITY is a party (each a “Dispute”). It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and the applicable AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and the applicable AAA Rules are found to not apply to any Dispute, then that Dispute shall be resolved under the Law of the State of New Jersey as set forth in Section 22.

- All other Disputes not subject to Section 23.c will be arbitrated in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules, except as modified by this Section 23 (“Non-Employment Related Disputes”).
- For both Employment Related Disputes and Non-Employment Related Disputes, the arbitration will be conducted in Middlesex County, New Jersey. There will be one neutral arbitrator, selected by JOBILITY in JOBILITY’s sole discretion. The arbitrator must follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would, including without limitation, the limitation of liability provisions in Section 19. The arbitrator will have no authority to award punitive, consequential, or liquidated damages. The prevailing party in the arbitration shall be entitled to receive reimbursement of its reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees, and all other expenses) incurred in connection with the arbitration. The award rendered may be entered and enforced in a court of competent jurisdiction. Except as may be required by law, neither JOBILITY, the Gigee, nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration without the prior written consent of both JOBILITY and the Gigee, unless to protect or pursue a legal right.
- You may opt-out of this Section 23 by providing written Notice to JOBILITY within 30 days of the date You first created an Account or the [EFFECTIVE DATE], whichever is later (the “Opt-Out Period”). If You do not opt-out of this Section 23 within the Opt-Out Period You will be subject to all the provisions in this Section 23. If You do opt-out of this Section 23, all other provisions of these Terms will still apply.
- In the event that Sections 23.c, 23.d, or 23.e is found not to apply to You or to a particular claim or dispute (except for small-claims court actions), You agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between You and JOBILITY must be resolved exclusively by a state court located in Middlesex County, New Jersey or federal court in New Jersey. You and JOBILITY agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of New Jersey for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
- Use of the JOBILITY Web Site, Platform, and/or Mobile Application is not authorized outside of the United States or in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms (including without limitation, this Section 23). You understand that, in return for agreement to this provision, JOBILITY is able to offer use of the JOBILITY Web Site, Platform, or Mobile Application at the terms set forth in these Terms, and that your assent to this provision is an indispensable consideration to these Terms.
- WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER THEORY).
- CLASS ACTION WAIVER. JOBILITY
AND HIRER MUTUALLY AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, BOTH
WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM BROUGHT, HEARD OR ARBITRATED AS A
CLASS ACTION AND/OR COLLECTIVE ACTION, AND AN ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT HAVE ANY
AUTHORITY TO HEAR OR ARBITRATE ANY CLASS AND/OR COLLECTIVE ACTION (“CLASS
ACTION WAIVER”). IN ANY CASE IN WHICH (1) THE DISPUTE IS FILED AS A CLASS
AND/OR COLLECTIVE ACTION AND (2) THERE IS A FINAL DETERMINATION THAT ALL OR
PART OF THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER IS UNENFORCEABLE, THE CLASS OR COLLECTIVE
ACTION TO THAT EXTENT MUST BE LITIGATED IN A CIVIL COURT OF COMPETENT
JURISDICTION (IF AT ALL), BUT THE PORTION OF THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT IS
ENFORCEABLE SHALL BE ENFORCED IN ARBITRATION.

this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if JOBILITY has the legal
obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Gigee is responsible under this
section, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by Gigee.
