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.

This LIVE CLE Webcast will offer a practical guide for both plaintiff and defense counsel on the recent developments and issues surrounding the enforcement of employee arbitration agreements in employment disputes. Listen as labor and employment law experts Fadi K. Rasheed (Leech Tishman) and Victor A. Machcinski, Jr. (Murphy & McGonigle) discuss the considerations that practitioners should take when drafting and negotiating these employment agreements.

Key topics include:

  • Employee Arbitration Agreements – Recent Trends and Developments
  • Notable Cases
  • Considerations to Take When Drafting Employment Arbitration Agreements
  • Practical Tips for Employers and Employees
