Now that Employees can Waive Wage and Hour Class Action Claims, Is it Time to Implement Binding Arbitration with your Workforce?
Earlier this year the California Supreme Court issued its decision in Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles, LLC, confirming that an employee may waive the right to bring a class action proceeding in an employment arbitration agreement entered with his or her employer. This new legal development, along with recent decisions by the United States Supreme Court endorsing arbitration agreements, has made binding arbitration agreements a more viable alternative for employers. Binding arbitration as an alternative to jury trial of employment disputes has many advantages from an employer’s perspective, but it also has some disadvantages.
This seminar will discuss the pros and cons of binding arbitration of employment disputes as well as the steps necessary to ensure that an arbitration agreement is enforceable.
