Consistent with the laws of the State of Texas, and notwithstanding any provision in an Arbitration Agreement, Tri-County's personnel rules, or any other writing that does not expressly purport to modify this specific Employee's employment at-will status, Employee's employment with Tri-County, regardless of specific job assignment, is, and shall remain, employment at-will.  Accordingly, Employee has, and will have, the right to resign from Center's employment at any time, with or without notice, and with or without cause.  Similarly, Tri-County may terminate Employee's employment at any time, with or without notice, and with or without cause.

An Arbitration Agreement is not intended to, and does not alter Employee's at-will employment status with Tri-County.  Employee's at-will employment with Tri-County may only be modified by a separate written agreement that specifically states intent to make that specific change and is signed by Employee and Tri-County's Chief Executive Officer. 

Any controversy or dispute between Employee and Tri-County or any of its constituent members, employees, officers, agents, affiliates, or benefit plans, arising from or in any way related to Employee's employment by Tri-County, or the termination thereof, including but not limited to the construction or application of this Agreement, shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding single-person arbitration administered by the American Arbitration ("AAA") under its Employment Rules then applicable to the dispute as modified to limit any arbitration to 120 days and to limit discovery to two depositions per side, each no longer than three hours, and to preclude any written discovery beyond fifteen requests for production.  Class and/or collective actions are waived and not permitted.

Each Applicant must agree to arbitrate and to waive class and collective action participation and each Employee, without exception, must sign and agree to the terms of the Arbitration Agreement as a condition of employment with Tri-County.


I understand that, as a condition of my request that Tri-County consider my application and possibly hire me, I must agree to Tri-County's Policy of Dispute Resolution, which I understand requires that all disputes between applicants or employees and Tri-County, its constituent member entities, and/or its officials and/or employees must be resolved solely by arbitration, in accordance with Tri-County's Dispute Resolution Policy, a copy of which I have been provided with in this application and that such policy further requires I waive any right to participate in any class or collective action, either as  representative or member and that, instead, I must resolve any dispute, as an applicant or employee, through a single-party arbitration under the specific terms and conditions set forth in Tri-County's Dispute Resolution Policy.  I hereby acknowledge receipt of that Policy and agree to be bound by all of its terms in connection with the consideration of my application for employment and throughout my employment, including termination thereof, if I am hired.
