A Practical Guide to Employee Arbitration Agreements: What You Need to Know
Recording Available: Thursday, February 04, 2021
Over the past years, employee arbitration agreements have been helpful in preventing employment-related lawsuits. If properly executed, arbitration clauses provide several benefits to both employers and employees. These benefits include the resolution of claims away from the public, the ability to select the arbitrator, and the faster process by which conflicts are resolved. Arbitration of claims is also significant in redirecting employment-related cases from overburdened courts.
However, as arbitration clauses become more prevalent in contracts, various enforceability issues also continue to emerge.
