ABA’s September 2022 Edition of Labor and Employment Law, Article by Lauren Wong
ROS partner, Lauren Wong, recently published an article entitled “Arbitral Non-Consent Sails Off into the Sunset in Viking River Cruises, Inc. v. Moriana” in the American Bar Association’s Summer 2022 Edition of Labor and Employment Law. The article details the Supreme Court’s continued support of the Federal Arbitration Act’s (“FAA”) policy favoring arbitration. Ms. Wong analyses the Supreme Court’s decision regarding the Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”), a California law created to address a deficit in California’s Labor Code. PAGA contains a claim joinder mechanism which the Court found conflicts with the FAA by effectively coercing a party to arbitrate claims that the parties did not agree jointly to arbitrate. Learn more about the Supreme Court’s decision and its impact on both employers’ and employees’ rights by reading Ms. Wong’s entire article, which is linked here.
