Don’t give in to the temptation to save money by writing your own arbitration agreements or using a standard template available from many arbitration services. Instead, have your attorney review your organization’s unique needs and draft a custom agreement.
Recent case: Cruise ship bartender “Jane Doe” claimed that while off-duty some co-workers slipped a drug in her drink. She awoke the next morning without her clothes on and believed she had been raped.
She sued the cruise line, which in turn demanded that the case go to arbitration because Doe had signed an arbitration agreement.
But the court said that because the alleged rape took place after work hours, the agreement didn’t apply. If the cruise line had wanted to cover other times of the day, it should have said so in the agreement. (Doe v. Princess Cruise Lines, No. 10-10809, 11th Cir., 2011)
