Read Frequently Asked Questions

There exists a liberal federal policy favoring arbitration, but a particular provision in the Federal Arbitration Act- or the FAA - known as the savings clause - permits agreements to arbitrate to be invalidated. This training program will discuss how, although there is a general sentiment favoring arbitration on a federal level, in recent years California state courts have aggressively employed the FAA’s savings clause to invalidate arbitration contracts between employers and their employees. This course will help attendees determine whether the arbitration clause in their employment agreement passes muster.

Why Should You Attend:

Employers often find litigating employment claims brought by their employees irksome; litigation is costly and time-consuming. Many employers turn arbitration to resolve claims with their employees. There are numerous advantages to choosing arbitration over litigation:

  • You can choose your own tribunal
  • You can choose the venue of the arbitration
  • Arbitration is typically faster than litigation
  • Arbitration can be more cost-effective
  • You can choose the procedures
  • Arbitration can be confidential
  • Arbitration can be conducted in the language of choice
  • You may be able to limit discovery
  • You can limit the motion practice

Given the numerous advantages of arbitration over litigation, many employers choose to enter into what are known as arbitration agreements with their employees.

This course will help you determine whether arbitration is right for you and your company and whether your arbitration agreement is sound under California law.
