President Biden Signs HR 4445 Limiting Scope of Employment Arbitration Agreements
Topics: Arbitration Agreements
To update our February 16, 2022 Blog, on March 3, 2022, President Biden signed the law amending the Federal Arbitration Act to prohibit mandatory arbitration of employee claims of sexual harassment or sexual assault.
As a result of this new law and several other developments in the laws surrounding mandatory arbitration agreements, California employers who utilize mandatory arbitration agreements with their employees should consider having an experienced labor and employment law attorney review and update them to help maximize the enforceability of the agreement, if challenged.
CDF Labor Law attorneys are on top of this issue. In fact, this topic will be expressly addressed at this month’s CDF Labor Law webinar on March 30. More information on the webinar is available here.
