Breaking: Bill H.R. 4445 signed into law by Biden. How will your organization comply?

On March 3, 2022, President Biden signed into law H.R. 4445, the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act. Some believe this is the most significant employment law reform in decades.

More than 60 million Americans are bound by arbitration agreements that confine their claims to a confidential dispute forum without any right of appeal. This bill would void those agreements and allow employees to pursue sexual assault and harassment claims in court.

You need to understand how this legislation will affect your organization and take steps to update policies and agreements.
