Effectively Challenging Discrimination & Harassment In A Post-Epic Systems World, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association

Workers’ rights advocates nationwide have condemned the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent Epic Systems decision as an “epic fail”—a ruling that will prevent the full and effective enforcement of state and federal employment laws for years to come, especially when systemic violations are at issue. But all is not lost. This is a pragmatic discussion about ways to defeat forced arbitration clauses and offer strategies for success in arbitration, focusing in particular on the unique considerations present in harassment and discrimination cases.
