Historic Ruling on Class Action Waivers in Arbitration Agreements

On May 21, 2018, the Supreme Court issued a significant decision for employers nationwide, effectively resolving a deep split among the circuits that followed the National Labor Relations Board’s D.R. Horton ruling in 2012. In a trio of wage and hour class actions, the divided Supreme Court held that employers may require employees to enter into arbitration agreements that contain class or collective action waivers as a condition of employment.

Manatt hosted a webinar that explored the ruling and the most crucial takeaways for employers. During the program, the presenters:

  • Reviewed the employment class action landscape and the background leading up to the dispute
  • Dissected the key aspects of the decision and its practical implications
  • Discussed the pros and cons of maintaining an employer arbitration program
  • Provided best practices and strategies for structuring employer arbitration agreements and programs to mitigate the risk of costly litigation
