Prevent Court Cases & Avoid Class Actions – Pros & Cons of Arbitration Agreements in Company Policies

Did you know that the ten highest-grossing wage-and-hour settlements in 2022 were worth more than $574 million combined?  Similarly, the ten highest settlements in class employment discrimination cases in 2022 total $597 million.  At the same time, defense attorneys complain about “runaway juries” and “nuclear verdicts.” 

What if there was a device by which adding a provision to an employment application could legally stop all class and collective actions, keep claims out of court, and avoid juries entirely? There is, it is called an individual arbitration agreement, which can be part of a job application. This webinar will examine the pros and cons of using individual arbitration agreements.

Presented by James W. Wimberly & James L Hughes.
