The Impact of the Supreme Court's Epic Decision on Class and Collective Action Waivers in Arbitration Agreements
The Supreme Court’s Epic decision undoubtedly favors employers who currently have, or who in the future may have, a mandatory arbitration program. However, despite what some media outlets and commentators might say in the wake of the Epic decision, employers should carefully consider a number of factors before deciding to roll out such a program. The questions of whether, how, when, and to what extent a mandatory arbitration program (with or without class and collective action waivers) should be implemented are complex and demand thoughtful deliberation prior to making any decisions.
Koley Jessen’s Employment, Labor and Benefits practice group will present a complementary webinar on the Epic decision and its impact. This webinar will also include discussion of the various considerations involved in designing and implementing a mandatory arbitration program (including waivers of class and collective actions) in the workplace.
