The Employer and the Association intend that all provisions of this Agreement shall conform with applicable law. The provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed severable. If an enactment or decision of any legislative body or court or administrative agency of competent jurisdiction invalidates any provision of this Agreement or requires conduct inconsistent with any provision of this Agreement, that provision shall be deemed null and void except to the extent permitted by law. If any such provision is invalidated and deemed null and void, the invalidity of such a provision shall not affect any other provision of this Agreement, and all other provisions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. When a provision of this Agreement that has been rendered invalid by this Section subsequently becomes legal as a result of a modification of applicable law during the term of this Agreement or extension thereof, the validity of such provision shall be renewed.
