In a long-awaited decision with significant implications for employers, a sharply divided United States Supreme Court held today that employers may require employees to enter into arbitration agreements that waive the ability to participate in a class or collective action.  The decision reverses the 7th, 9th and 6th Circuit, and rejects the National Labor Relations’ Board’s D.R. Horton theory that such agreements were prohibited under the National Labor Relations Act.  Now, it is incumbent upon employers to consider carefully whether mandatory arbitration agreements with class and collective action waivers make sense for their workforce. 
 
Join us for a discussion of the Epic decision, as well as remaining obstacles, considerations and implementation strategies for employers.
