What Employers Should Know About Class Waivers After Epic Systems Decision



In a decisive 5-4 opinion, the Supreme Court held in Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis that class action waivers in employment arbitration agreements must be enforced under the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), and neither the FAA’s saving clause nor the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) suggest otherwise. This case reaffirms longstanding federal policy favoring arbitration. 

This complimentary one hour webinar will discuss the Court’s findings, its potential impact on both employers and employees, the pros and cons of employment arbitration agreements, and best practices designed to maximize the enforceability of employment arbitration agreements. 

Presenting from LeClairRyan’s Labor and Employment Practice Team are Rafael Nendel-Flores and Guillermo Tello, with James Anelli as moderator.

Note: This program has been submitted to the HR Certification Institute for review.
