The U.S. Supreme Court has affirmed that employers are free to use properly drafted arbitration agreements, which may include class action, collective action, and multi-party litigation waivers. The arbitration agreements may be a mandatory condition of employment. While employers may require employees to execute arbitration agreements, a separation question is whether they should. What are the pros of using arbitration agreements? What are the cons? Are arbitrations more expeditious and less costly? Or, is the opposite true? Can arbitration agreements be challenged and if so, how? Join an esteemed panel of in-house counsel and attorneys representing plaintiffs and defendants as they discuss their different perspectives on these issues and others implicated by mandatory arbitration agreements.
