Legal Beagle Bagel Breakfast

On May 21, 2018 the United States Supreme Court issued a ruling permitting the use of class action waivers in arbitration agreements.  The Court ruled that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) requires the courts to enforce arbitration agreements according to their terms, including terms requiring individualized arbitration proceedings.  The Court further declared that the National Labor Relations Act does not displace the FAA by preventing employees from engaging in “concerted activities.” The significance of this ruling cannot be overstated.  Employers and employees can enter into arbitration agreements that require individualized arbitration, and which prohibit class or collective actions.  The courts must enforce the arbitration agreement as written. Join us at our next Legal Beagle Bagel Breakfast at 9 am on Thursday, May 31st to learn about arbitration agreements, what makes them valid, and how this Supreme Court decision will affect workplace litigation in California.
