Event details
March 16, 2021
1:00 – 2:00 pm Eastern Standard Time

Event summary

In the wake of the Supreme Court's recent decisions in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion and Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis, companies and employers increasingly have included class action waivers in their consumer and employment arbitration agreements, which require consumers and employees to arbitrate their claims on an individual and noncollective, nonrepresentative basis.

With the mass arbitration phenomenon likely to stay, companies with arbitration agreements in their consumer and employment agreements may wish to consider their options. In addition to discussing how the mass arbitration trend took hold, the program will review recent cases, legal developments and potential mechanisms for addressing the possibility of mass arbitrations for companies who wish to keep class action waivers in their arbitration agreements.

This program will examine the rise of mass arbitrations as an alternative to traditional class actions and its consequences for companies.
