2019: A Year of Dramatic Changes for Mandatory Employment Arbitration

Program Number
Program Date

With the support of federal law, which generally favors arbitration in the employment context, employers regularly craft and rely upon broad arbitration provisions and agreements. In 2019, however, employers looking to rely on mandatory arbitration provisions confronted new questions presented by state legislatures, courts of law, and perhaps most importantly, public opinion. The contrast between clear federal support for arbitration of employment disputes, and a recent public backlash against the process, has led some legislatures try to limit mandatory arbitration. In this program, we will dive into federal authorization of mandatory arbitration agreements, the rise new challenges to mandatory arbitration, and some of 2019s positive court decisions for employers.
