A California Court of Appeal has issued a favorable opinion for employers regarding arbitration agreements. Specifically, the Court held that an employer did not waive its right to enforce an arbitration agreement by waiting to request arbitration until after the U.S. Supreme Court has issued a decision addressing the enforceability of class action waivers in arbitration agreements, the California Court of Appeal has ruled. Reyes v. Liberman Broadcasting, Inc., No. B235211 (Cal. Ct. App. Aug. 31, 2012). Significantly, the Court found the employer did not waive its right to arbitration because it had reasonably concluded it could not have enforce the agreement under the then-current state of California law and could have been subjected to class arbitration.
