I work for a large company and recently they have implemented new training. Employees must use a company computer and do "training" But, one of the training items is signing an arbitration agreement. If we do not sign this arbitration agreement by the 20th of April, we will not recieve 100% on our training and the manager said he will take us off the schedule for 2 consecutive weeks. However, there is an opt out form for this legal agreement, but it must be faxed or mailed to corp. within 30 days. I have chosen to opt out of this agreement, but I will not recieve 100% on my training and get my hours taken away. Is this legal? Can I be punished this way for protecting my rights by choosing to opt out of the arbitration agreement?In this agreement, it states that even FMLA, Americans w/ Disibilities Act, Civil Rights Act, rest periods and pay, and age discrimination are included in this agreement.
