FJE Funder Call on Forced Arbitration
On May 21, 2018, the Supreme Court made a 5-4 decision in the Murphy Oil vs. NLRB case, allowing corporations to include arbitration clauses in employee contracts that effectively force employees to settle any disputes through arbitration. The decision on this case delivers a major blow to workers’ ability to deal with any workplace violations with their employer.
Funders for a Just Economy discussed this case, along with several other upcoming labor issues, during this year's Policy Briefing & Labor Strategy Session in March 2018. Join us to continue this conversation, learn about the implications of the case, and hear directly from attorneys working on the issue alongside community partners.
