Anybody come across an _optional_ mutual arbitration agreement when starting with a new job? The document says that accepting the agreement is not a condition of employment. If that’s so, then why would I ever choose to sign it? Thanks for your thoughts!

It might make life simpler for you to sign it, if you have a small issue. It's not going to help you out if something terrible happens. https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/signing-arbitration-agreement-with-employer-30005.html#:~:text=Many%20employers%20ask%20employees%20to,breach%20of%20contract%2C%20and%20discrimination

Do you have the deal signed otherwise? If so, I don't know if I'd do it...

Eh, I'm the type of person who doesn't like to sign anything I don't have to, but if you're remote and you think it would make it weird with the managers not to sign it, it probably doesn't matter. Wouldn't want you to regret it though lol.
