New Law Bans Forced Arbitration for Sexual Misconduct

New Law Bans Forced Arbitration for Sexual Misconduct

Enactment of this law ends the practice of forcing employees into arbitration for cases involving sexual assault, sexual harassment and other sexual misconduct. However, the bill doesn’t go far enough and could still force victims of age, race, religion, disability and national origin discrimination to be subject to a valid Arbitration Agreement. The work environment is one of the few places where people are exposed to other people of different races, different religions and different cultures. If we can’t get along and respect each other in the work place, how are we going to treat each other with respect and dignity outside of the workplace. Public policy dictates that employers should not be able to hide behind an Arbitration Agreement to avoid the scrutiny of a jury. Public policy dictates that juries should be the sole triers of fact in all employment cases.
