ARBITRATION AGREEMENT and WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION AND JURY TRIAL RIGHTS: In consideration of you applying for employment with Life Storage LP ("Life Storage") and it considering you for employment and employing you (if employed), Life Storage agrees and by submitting this application you also agree to all of the following terms in this paragraph. To the extent permitted by law, any and all claims and disputes between you and Life Storage, any and all claims and disputes brought by either of us against the other's directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, members, partners, shareholders, successors or assigns, and any and all disputes brought by either of us against the other's parents, subsidiaries, affiliates or other related entities or any of their directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, members, partners, shareholders, successors or assigns (all of the foregoing individuals and entities being defined singularly as "Covered Party" and collectively as "Covered Parties"), arising out of or related to your application for employment, your employment or the cessation of your employment with Life Storage and arising under or based on the common law of any state and/or any federal, state, local or municipal law, rule, regulation or ordinance (all of the foregoing claims and disputes being defined as "Covered Claims"), will, at the request of the Covered Party asserting any Covered Claims or the Covered Party against which any Covered Claims are asserted, be submitted to and resolved exclusively by final and binding individual (and not class, collective, representative or joint) arbitration pursuant to the American Arbitration Association's ("AAA") Employment Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures as then in effect, including any available appeal procedure. (The current Employment Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures can be reviewed at and obtained from AAA's website - www.adr.org.) By way of example only, Covered Claims include claims for employment discrimination, violation of wage and overtime and background check laws, defamation and claims based in contract, tort, statute, fraud or any other legal theory. Any Covered Claims that are arbitrated will be decided by a neutral third-party arbitrator outside of court without a jury. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award any relief available in a court of law, but shall not have the authority to consolidate more than one person's claims or to preside over any form of a class, collective, representative or joint proceeding. You and Life Storage waive the right to bring or participate (in any capacity) in any class, collective, representative or joint action or proceeding against any Covered Party concerning any Covered Claims whether in court or arbitration. The validity, enforcement and interpretation of this paragraph shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Any arbitration conducted pursuant to this paragraph shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. Secs. 1-16). If the waiver of the right to bring or participate in a class, collective, representative or joint action or proceeding is found to be void, unenforceable or limited in any respect, then the agreement to arbitrate any affected Covered Claims shall be null and void, subject to the right to appeal such determination, but the agreement to arbitrate shall remain valid and enforceable with respect to all other Covered Claims. You may opt out of arbitration by sending a letter by U.S. Certified Mail (return receipt requested) within 30 days after submitting this application stating you wish to "opt out of arbitration" to: Life Storage LP, Attn: Director of Human Resources, 6467 Main Street, Williamsville, New York 14221. You and Life Storage waive the right to a jury trial for any Covered Claims heard in court involving any Covered Parties, including but not limited to those brought as a class, collective, representative or joint action, and such Covered Claims will be decided solely by the court. Nothing in this paragraph prohibits you from filing any charge or complaint with or assisting any governmental agency.
