You Don’t Have To Walk Away: Fighting Forced Arbitration Provisions Or Remaining In Arbitration & Winning, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association

Many plaintiffs’ employment lawyers have come to dread the point when they learn that a client with a strong claim has “agreed” to binding arbitration, and, all too often, this is the point when the lawyer gives up on the case and walks away. But it doesn’t have to be that way. For one thing, there are still several viable ways of defeating forced arbitration clauses that do not rely on the NLRA cases argued at the U.S. Supreme Court this term. This panel will explore these challenges to forced arbitration and what to look for to see if a particular clause is beatable. We will then describe strategies for succeeding in the arbitral forum if you have to bring your case there, focusing on the ways in which arbitration differs from traditional litigation and how plaintiffs’ attorneys can use those differences to benefit our clients.

This course has been approved in CA, OK, VT and IL. Please see your state's MCLE site for more information or to find out if attorneys may earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission.
