An employer’s delay in moving to compel arbitration waived its right to enforce an arbitration agreement and block a class action in court filed by its employees.Oregel v. PacPizza, LLC, 187 Cal. Rptr. 3d 436 (Cal. Ct. App. 1st 2015) (No. A141947). Prior to moving to compel arbitration, the employer answered plaintiff’s original and amended complaints without alleging the existence of an agreement to arbitrate, and engaged in discovery for over one year. The appellate court affirmed the trial court’s finding that the employer’s participation in litigation was inconsistent with its claimed right to arbitrate and that the employer had thus waived its right to compel arbitration.
