General Law

Mandatory Arbitration Clauses After Epic Systems v. Lewis

In Epic Systems, the Supreme Court approved employee waivers of workplace class action claims in favor of individual arbitration proceedings, and, in so doing, rejected federal statutory protection of such claims. Will Armendariz survive? What impact will Epic Systems have on employment litigation practice in California? This panel discussion looks at both plaintiff and defense perspectives on the broader subject of mandatory arbitration as a condition of employment and in litigating cases before arbitrators after Epic.
