Andrew Murphy and Samantha Rollins authored an article for Law360 titled “Employers Can Adapt Arbitration Pacts to Changing Needs.”
Because of COVID-19 and its subsequent downturn in the economy, businesses are looking for ways to reduce their legal spend, including adopting or modifying programs in which they and their employees (or putative employees) are required to arbitrate, rather than litigate, their disputes. Labor & Employment partner Andrew Murphy and associate Samantha Rollins authored an article for Law360 regarding this issue, providing considerations and strategies when adopting arbitration agreements and streamlining the arbitration process.
“In sum, employers should not abandon their arbitration agreements wholesale. Rather, they should carefully consider whether they can adopt or modify their arbitration agreements to ensure that they serve the fundamental purpose of arbitration: the orderly and efficient resolution of disputes.”
