Mandatory Arbitration: Present and Future

The Supreme Court’s ruling in Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis made clear that mandatory arbitration agreements are valid, even for Title VII claims, and that an employer could impose enforceable class-wide arbitration waivers.  This webinar will review the current status of mandatory arbitration in light of the “#MeToo” movement and examine the increasing number of alternative approaches that Congress is seeking, as well as those the states are enacting and private employers are imposing on themselves.

Presenters: David S. Fortney and Burton J. Fishman
