Why Should you Attend
There exists a liberal federal policy favoring arbitration, but a particular provision in the Federal Arbitration Act- or the FAA- known as the "savings clause"- permits agreements to arbitrate to be invalidated.
As we will discuss in this course, although there is a general sentiment favoring arbitration on a federal level, in recent years California state courts have aggressively employed the FAA´s "savings clause" to invalidate arbitration contracts between employers and their employees.
This course will help you determine whether the arbitration clause in your employment agreement passes muster.
