The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that employers do have the right to include class-action waivers in their arbitration agreements. Under such provisions, employees agree to arbitrate their employment disputes and waive their rights to participate in class-action lawsuits or class arbitrations.
In the 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court said the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) pre-empts any state laws that would try to nullify an arbitration clause that bars class-wide arbitrations.
Bottom line: Employers seeking to avoid class-action litigation should consider including arbitration clauses with class-action waivers in their contracts.
