Some Things to Consider in Deciding if an Employer Can Force You to Arbitrate Your Employment Claims

Posted by attorney Jason Oliver

Additional resources provided by the author

If the claimed arbitration agreement was not signed by you, was a product of fraud, or consent was obtained under other suspicious or coercive circumstances, you may have a basis to challenge the formation of the agreement. If the agreement is both procedurally and substantively unconscionable it may be unenforceable, in whole or in part. The same is true if the agreement contains illegal provisions. For more information on whether an arbitration agreement may be used to deprive you of your day in court, please consult with a licensed attorney. In Los Angeles, California, feel free to call (213) 784-2574 or (626) 797-2777. In San Francisco, you may wish to call (415) 935-6904.
