The speaker, a leading critic of mandatory arbitration agreements, will provide valuable insights from the plaintiff's perspective on employment dispute arbitration. Mr. Palefsky has been in the forefront of the opposition to mandatory arbitration for the past 24 years in both the courts and the legislature. He has been involved in many of the leading arbitration cases, and will reflect on the rapidly developing state of the law, including the NLRB’s D.R Horton decision, the state of class actions after AT&T v Concepcion, the alternative dispute resolution industry, the proposed Arbitration Fairness legislation, and the implications of mandatory arbitration on civil justice in America.
