This interactive session will explore the hottest legal questions about arbitration agreements that waive participation in class action lawsuits. Many employers have considered or rolled out individual employee arbitration agreements in light of favorable case law over the past five years. The law has continued to evolve and uncertainties remain, but a well-crafted arbitration agreement can help to avoid a bet-the-company class action. Topics of discussion include:

  • Updates from the Supreme Court and Ninth Circuit
  • Potential impacts of new Washington legislation
  • Pros and cons of arbitration versus litigation
  • Key decision points about arbitration agreements
  • Critical provisions to include and avoid
  • 50-state unconscionability compliance
  • Practical advice for rolling out arbitration agreements
  • Remaining areas of uncertainty
  • Steps to take when a lawsuit is filed
  • Successes and mistakes to learn from
