In this practical video-encore presentation, Settle Down: Recent Trends in Employment Arbitrationpanelists examine recent trends in employment arbitration after last year's U.S. Supreme Court landmark decision in Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis, 138 S. Ct. 1612 (2018). Epic Systems held that class action waivers contained in arbitration agreements, including agreements between employers and their employees, are permissible and enforceable. Basically, the Federal Arbitration Act can override the NLRB provisions in allowing arbitration and precluding class actions. What does this all mean for employers and employees moving forward? 

Panelists will address:
The implications of the Supreme Court's decision in Epic Systems - as well as the unintended consequences for employers
What to look for when selecting an arbitrator and a mediator
When to seek mediation - and how best to respond to your adversary's request to mediate
Differences in discovery and motion practice between arbitration and litigation
The different strategies and tactics in arbitration v. litigation - how to take advantage of arbitration
"Best practices" in arbitration and mediation
Join your colleagues for this luncheon video-encore and hear practical tips and guidance for alternative dispute resolution in employment cases.
