The Supreme Court’s ruling in Viking River provides a new opportunity for employers to address one of the most burdensome types of employment claims they can face: Private Attorney General Act (“PAGA”) actions. But not all arbitration agreements are created equal, and not all of them will be primed to take advantage of the Viking River decision without modification.
Join us as we discuss arbitration agreements in the employment context, the ins and outs of the Viking River decision and how employers can leverage it to their advantage to reduce litigation risk and liability, other recent arbitration-law developments that employers must be aware of when choosing to implement arbitration agreements, and best practices for creating enforceable and defensible arbitration agreements.
