In a battle between the enforceability of arbitration collective and class action waiver clauses in employment agreements and the right of employees under the National Labor Relations Act to engage in “concerted activities” for “mutual aid or protection,” which side will win? In October, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument on this very question in the consolidated cases of Murphy Oil USA, Epic Systems, and Ernst and Young. In this lunchtime webinar, experienced counsel in the field will give us their take on the oral argument and consider the potential implications of the forthcoming decision not only in the context of employment agreements, but for arbitration agreements generally.
Steven Skulnik, Practical Law - Thomson Reuters, DRS Arbitration Committee Co-Chair
John Halebian, Lovell Stewart Halebian Jacobson LLP
