This week, we’re diving into arbitration agreements and learning some best practices for employers when crafting these agreements.

Avoiding Legal Illusions: Crafting Effective Arbitration Agreements

Employers often include arbitration agreements in their onboarding and other employee materials. Arbitration agreements are an important tool for employers due to the relative speed and lower costs associated with arbitration compared to litigation. However, these agreements are subject to increasing scrutiny and require careful consideration from employers.

Epstein Becker Green attorneys Victoria Sloan Lin and Andrew Lichtenstein highlight some hidden elements that can impact the effectiveness of arbitration agreements.
