About the Program
Wage and Hour claims, especially those brought in a collective and/or class action context, remain the most dominant lawsuit brought against employers. In May 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court expressly upheld class action waivers in the context of an arbitration agreement. Thus, at least in the arbitration context, an employer knows that it can enforce an arbitration agreement with a class action waiver. But do you want to have to arbitrate your claims against your employees? Can you enforce a jury waiver and a class action waiver outside the context of arbitration? And, if you can, are you better off using these tools than an arbitration agreement with a class action waiver? Join FordHarrison attorneys Jeff Mokotoff and Kristina Griffin to learn about the benefits and potential drawbacks of using arbitration agreements and jury and class action waivers independent of arbitration agreements.
