Training Overview

Learn how the new Supreme Court decision affects employee arbitration agreements in your organization.

In Viking River Cruises v. Moriana, the Supreme Court ruled on June 15 that the Federal Arbitration Act allows an individual to be separated from class-representation actions to adhere to an arbitration agreement. This decision has repercussions for all employers. It is especially relevant for those in states with Private Attorneys General Acts (PAGA) that permit employees to sue employers for Labor Code violations on behalf of the state and share in any monetary recovery, such as California.

You need to understand the specific details of this case to apply them to your organization. Based on the facts, you may want to make changes to your arbitration agreement templates and strategy.
