Epic Systems vs. #MeToo: What Now?

July 24, 2018
02:00 PM - 06:30 PM

On one hand, the US Supreme Court reaffirmed the use of mandatory arbitration clauses with class action waivers in Epic Systems. On the other, #MeToo has spurred a public backlash and burgeoning federal and state laws take aim at mandatory arbitration.

Leading in-house counsel, corporate defense attorneys, counsel from the plaintiffs’ bar, and noted academics will discuss anticipated legislative responses to the decision, advantages and disadvantages of mandatory arbitration for employment disputes, including opt-in and opt-out clauses, considerations when carving particular claims out of employment programs, and what makes a successful employment program in light of new, competing priorities.
