An ‘Epic’ Win for Employers

On May 21, 2018, the United States Supreme Court decided Epic Sys. Corp. v. Lewis​, finding that employment arbitration agreements that contain class action waivers are enforceable. Prior to this case, best practices required an opt-out option for employees when contemplating waiver of rights to file a class or collective action. This won’t get anyone out of claims under California’s PAGA, but it adds another tool for strategic discussion on how to limit lawsuits by rogue employees.
