Does anyone have an Employee Arbitration Agreement that they are willing to share? Specifically looking for one for an employer in CA to use. A few months ago, the 9th Circuit partially reversed a temporary ban on a CA law that made mandatory arbitration agreements unlawful, so now it’s unclear exactly how to move forward in advising clients about using arbitration agreements.
From what I’ve researched, it seems acceptable to have an employee affirmatively “opt-in” to an arbitration agreement, but an employee’s refusal to agree to mandatory arbitration can no longer be grounds for termination of employment or a reason to not hire someone. This article was a great summary of the change in law. If anyone has a recently updated agreement to share, that would be great!
