The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in Epic Systems v. Lewis is a win for employers who have included or wish to include class action waivers in arbitration agreements that employees are required to sign as a condition of employment. On May 21, the Supreme Court rejected the existing position of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which had held that arbitration agreements waiving the right to pursue class or collective actions violated federal labor law. The Supreme Court overturned the NLRB and held that the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) requires such mandatory arbitration agreements to be enforced according to their terms. Following this decision, individual arbitration provisions may preclude employees from pursuing class or collective actions to resolve employment disputes.
