BrightTALK presents a webcast: Recent Events Suggest That Employers Should Consider Arbitration

Friday, May 15, 2009 - Friday, May 15, 2009
04:00 am London - 04:00 am London

Recent events suggest that it is a good time for employers to think -- or rethink -- whether they should be obtaining pre-dispute arbitration agreements from their employers.

Neal Mollen, Partner in Paul Hastings Employment Law department, and Dara Freling, Associate in Paul Hastings Employment Law department, will participate in a webcast to discuss such recent decisions as 14 Penn Plaza LLC v. Pyett, 129 S. Ct. 1456 (Apr. 1, 2009), Hall Street Associates, LLC v. Mattel, Inc., 128 S. Ct. 1396 (2008) and Citigroup Global Markets, Inc. v. Bacon, ___ F.3d ___, 2009 WL 542780 (5th Cir. March 5, 2009).

Discussion will also include pending legislation that may further complicate the decision whether arbitration agreements make sense and, if so, when. Also addressed will be best practices for how an employer can integrate these recent events into its own arbitration programs and how to prepare for the changing landscape in this area.
