I’m delighted to be presenting a webinar on “Sexual Harassment Claims and Mandatory Arbitration Agreements” for the California Lawyers Association from 12:00 to 1:00 pm PDT on Wednesday, April 24. In the wake of the #MeToo Movement, the use of pre-dispute arbitration agreements in the context of sexual harassment claims has come under fierce attack with some companies abandoning them altogether. We will discuss this alarming trend along with the pros and cons of arbitration and related topics such as the CEO diversity pledge. Learn more and register here.
