When a new employee signs receipt for the employee handbook and starts their new job, they may not notice the clause requiring mandatory arbitration of future employment claims. Over half of the contracts that non-union private sector employees sign now include mandatory arbitration clauses, and these clauses may prevent employees from taking cases such as wage and hour violations, discrimination, and benefits issues to court.
Join Dickinson Wright's Jeff Beemer and Christy McDonald as they discuss the pro's and con's of mandatory arbitration of employment claims. This informative webinar will review mandatory arbitration agreements and also review elements such as arbitrator selection, discovery limits, fee sharing, and class-action waivers.
Key takeaways and discussion topics:
- Learn the pros and cons of arbitration in employment claims
- Decide whether you can or should require that employees arbitrate their employment claims
- Discuss class action waivers
- Discuss best practices for arbitrator selection and process
