In Walters v. AAA Waterproofing, Inc., the plaintiff sued his former employer in Washington state court for unpaid overtime compensation. The former employer moved to compel arbitration based on an arbitration clause in the employee's employment contract, and the plaintiff opposed, alleging that the clause was unconscionable and unenforceable. A Washington court of appeals agreed that portions of the arbitration agreement were unconscionable; specifically, a provision requiring the arbitration hearing to be conducted in Colorado (where the former employer was headquartered and incorporated) and a requirement that the prevailing party be awarded attorney fees and costs (which conflicted with state law). However, because the agreement contained a severability clause and the unconscionable provisions were not "pervasive," the court held that the unconscionable provisions could be stricken and enforced the remainder of the arbitration agreement.
