Supreme Court Set to Examine Mandatory Arbitration Clauses in Employment Contracts

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments next week on whether mandatory arbitration clauses that limit the power of employees to join class actions violate the National Labor Relations Act’s protections of “concerted activities.”

Three cases on the issue have been consolidated: NLRB v. Murphy Oil, Epic Systems v. Lewis, and Ernst & Young v. Morris. Corporations and business organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce have lined up in this case against labor unions, Public Citizen, the NAACP, 16 states and the District of Columbia.
