may be dismissed for good cause.

for no definite period, and my employment and compensation may be terminated by either the Employer or me
at any time and for any reason whatsoever, with or without good cause. This is the entire agreement between
the Employer and me regarding dispute resolution, the length of my employment, and the reasons for termination
of employment, and this agreement supersedes any and all prior agreements regarding these issues. It is further
agreed and understood that any agreement contrary to the foregoing must be entered into, in writing, by the
President of the Company. No supervisor or representative of the Employer, other than its President, has any
authority to enter into any agreement for employment for any specified period of time or make any agreement
contrary to the foregoing. Oral representations made before or after I am hired do not alter this Agreement.

be extended or be reimposed at any point in my employment. The existence of the Probationary Period does
not alter, amend or remove the Employer’s At-Will employment policy.

plans) or that the Employer may have against me, arising from, related to, or having any relationship or
connection whatsoever with my seeking employment with, employment by, or other association with the
Employer shall be submitted to and determined exclusively by binding arbitration under the Federal Arbitration
Act, in conformity with the procedures of the California Arbitration Act (Cal. Code Civ. Proc. Section 1280 et seq.,
including section 1283.05 and all of the Act’s other mandatory and permissive rights to discovery). Included
within the scope of this Agreement are all disputes, whether based on tort, contract, statute (including, but
not limited to, any claims of discrimination and harassment, whether they be based on the California Fair
Employment and Housing Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, or any other state or federal
law or regulation), equitable law, or otherwise, with exception of claims arising under the National Labor Relations
Act which are brought before the National Labor Relations Board, claims for medical and disability benefits under
the CaliforniaWorkers’ Compensation Act, Employment Development Department claims, or as may otherwise
be required by state or federal law. However, nothing herein shall prevent me from filing and pursuing
proceedings before the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, or the United States
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (although if I choose to pursue a claim following the exhaustion of
such administrative remedies, that claim would be subject to the provisions of this Agreement). In addition to
any other requirements imposed by law, the arbitrator selected shall be a retired California Superior Court
Judge, or otherwise qualified individual to whom the parties mutually agree, and shall be subject to
disqualification on the same grounds as would apply to a judge of such court. All rules of pleading (including
the right of demurrer), all rules of evidence, all rights to resolution of the dispute bymeans of motions for summary
judgment, judgment on the pleadings, and judgment under Code of Civil Procedure Section 631.8 shall apply
and be observed. Resolution of the dispute shall be based solely upon the law governing the claims and
defenses pleaded, and the arbitrator may not invoke any basis (including but not limited to, motions of "just
cause") other than such controlling law. The arbitrator shall have the immunity of a judicial officer from civil
liability when acting in the capacity of an arbitrator, which immunity supplements any other existing
immunity. Likewise, all communications during or in connection with the arbitration proceedings are privileged in
accordance with Cal. Civil Code Section 47(b). As reasonably required to allow full use and benefit of this
agreement's modifications to the Act’s procedures, the arbitrator shall extend the times set by the Act for
the giving of notices and setting of hearings. Awards shall include the arbitrator's written reasoned opinion.
Any dispute concerning the validity, enforceability, scope or interpretation of this Agreement, or concerning the
arbitrability of a particular claim, shall be resolved by a court of law of competent jurisdiction. I understand and
agree to this binding arbitration provision, and I and the Company both give up our rights to trial by jury
of any claim I or the Company may have against each other.
