Arbitrating Class Actions – Does Arbitration Bind Employees Who Do Not Opt-in?


Decision could have a major impact on employers whose arbitration agreements are silent.

There is a significant difference separating federal court class actions and class actions proceeding in arbitration. At the same time arbitrators’ jurisdiction is obtained entirely from contractual agreements, the federal courts derive jurisdiction over litigants following Article III of the U.S. Constitution. This white paper reviews that difference as well as discusses case decisions that clarify it.
