Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver Enforcement in Employment Litigation


This practice note provides step-by-step guidance to consider when enforcing an arbitration agreement and class action waivers in employment cases. Arbitration agreements are agreements that compel individuals to bring legal claims in arbitration, rather than in court. A class action waiver is an agreement, or a section in a broader agreement, that restricts an individual's ability to bring a class, collective, or other representative action. Employers often include class action waivers in arbitration agreements.
