Both employer and employee signed a three-page standalone arbitration agreement, but both failed to put their initials by the bolded provision that said both waived the right to a jury trial.  This decision holds that the parties are bound by the arbitration agreement.  Their signatures showed their assent to its terms which unequivocally bound them to arbitrate.  The employee’s uncommunicated reservations were ineffective to avoid agreement under California’s objective theory of contracts.  Not initialling the jury trial waiver clause did not introduce any doubt about the parties’ agreement to arbitrate disputes.  Cases dealing with employees signing acknowledgements they read an employee manual that contains an arbitration clause are distinguishable, as here the arbitration agreement was standalone so there could be no doubt as to what the employee was agreeing to.
