Employers and employees are increasingly turning to contractual arbitration to resolve employment disputes as a less expensive and more efficient alternative to litigation; however, a steady stream of recent arbitration decisions, including U.S. Supreme Court cases AT&T v. Concepcion (Apr. 27, 2011) and the NLRB’s controversial ruling in D.R. Horton, Inc. (Jan. 3, 2012) demonstrate that the arbitrability of such disputes is in a constant state of flux. In this program, we will discuss recent developments in the law.
