EmployerLINC Webinar: To Arbitrate or Not? That is the Question

Michael Lauderdale

With the incidents of employment-related lawsuits on the rise and due to the uncertainties of facing a jury trial, many employers are considering or have enacted mandatory arbitration programs which essentially require both the employer and the employee to submit any disputes to binding arbitration. The question is whether or not the enactment of a binding arbitration is truly in the best interests of an employer.

During this one-hour complimentary webinar, labor and employment attorney Michael Lauderdale discusses the common issues employers must consider, including:

  • Is arbitration a faster and less expensive process versus the court system?
  • Do counsel for employees fear arbitration?
  • Can arbitration decisions be appealed?
  • Does having an arbitration program affect an employer’s ability to hire?
  • Can an arbitration program prevent class actions?
  • Is it expensive to roll out an arbitration policy?
  • Does an arbitration program lead to increased employee claims?
  • Can an arbitration program bind the government?
  • Is Congress likely to prohibit mandatory employment arbitration?
