Risks of Arbitration Clauses in Employment Contracts


Understand the pros and cons of using arbitration for employee dispute resolution and specific drafting considerations.

Many employers turn to arbitration as a means of resolving disputes with their employees in place of litigation in state or federal courts. Recent statutory and case law developments, as well as the advent of "mass" or "serial" arbitration filings by large groups of employees, have added important new legal and strategic considerations for employers. This presentation will help the people responsible for deciding whether to add arbitration provisions to employment agreements to understand the current employment arbitration landscape. The live webinar explains the pros and cons of using arbitration for employee dispute resolution, new legal requirements and restrictions related to arbitration, and specific drafting considerations. This workshop is critical for employers so they can ensure their use of employee.
