[Maplebear Inc. dba Instacart] Instacart's Independent Contractor Agreement names JAMS Employment Rules

Instacart’s independent contractor agreement includes an arbitration provision that names JAMS. There is a 30-day opt out. It is unclear how Instacart treats those independent contractors that opt out.

It is interesting to me that it names the JAMS Employment rules but surely would argue that independent contractors are not employees. That may be a meaningless distinction but still would be interesting to explore in the future.
