I’m traveling for work this week but today’s Supreme Court opinion is one I have been waiting for all term. In Epic Systems v. Lewis, the Court held that arbitration agreements between employees and employers that require mandatory arbitration of disputes can also require that all disputes be arbitrated individually and not as a class or collection action. The impact of this case is significant in managing potential claims arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act. More on this case later.
