The Aftermath of Epic Systems
Friday, April 26, 2019 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

The presentation will cover the U.S. Supreme Court’s holding in Epic Systems and the practical issues raised by the decision, which will include: What strategies exist for employees to challenge arbitration agreements and class action waivers- whether legal policy, or collective-action based? Can employee advocates still litigate class and collective actions where employers have instituted arbitration agreements with class waivers after litigation has commenced? And many other issues!
