Arbitration Agreements in Employment: New Considerations for Employers

June 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Kara MacielAndrew Sommer and Aaron Gelb

on Thursday, June 14th at 2pm ET for a webinar

In May, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an important ruling clearing the way for employers to implement valid arbitration agreements as a condition of their employment. Importantly, these agreements may now include a class action waiver requiring employees to individually arbitrate claims that previously would have been asserted as part of a class or collective action.

With no end in sight for wage and hour class claims, employers of all sizes may want to consider requiring their employees to sign standalone employment arbitration agreements or include arbitration as part of a comprehensive alternative dispute resolution program.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • the pros and cons of arbitration;
  • tactical considerations for drafting an agreement that aligns with your company’s culture and goals in minimizing expensive and protracted litigation;
  • unique considerations under California law including claims that are not subject to arbitration and the required components of any arbitration proceeding;
  • strategies for rolling a new agreement out to employees or for minimizing costly legal exposure.
