Arbitration Agreements in Employment Contracts Webinar

September 17, 2018 Seminar Materials

On Wednesday, September 12, Verrill Dana attorneys Richard Moon, Benjamin Ford, and Chris Lockman presented a webinar entitled "Arbitration Agreements in Employment Contracts After the 'Epic' Decision." A description and link to the recorded webcast is below.

Following the recent "epic" Supreme Court decision holding that employers can enforce class action waivers in arbitration agreements, many employers are re-opening the discussion of whether to include a mandatory arbitration clause in their employment contracts. During this webinar, Verrill Dana attorneys Richard Moon, Benjamin Ford, and Chris Lockman will discuss the Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis Supreme Court decision and the state of the law, the value and enforceability of arbitration agreements, and the pros and cons of arbitration agreements in employee benefits disputes.
