In an eagerly awaited decision, the California Supreme Court recently ruled in Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles that California courts are required to enforce class action waivers in employee arbitration agreements as long as the agreements are otherwise enforceable. Although the California Supreme Court had ruled in 2007 that such class action waivers were invalid, the Court held that it was compelled to overrule its prior position based upon recent rulings by the United States Supreme Court.

This webinar will discuss this legal development in detail and cover other topics related to arbitration agreements including:

• The pros and cons of employers implementing arbitration agreements;
• Best practices for implementing such agreements across the workforce; and
• Common drafting mistakes employers make that have resulted in courts invalidating arbitration agreements.
