A recent trend in the law has been for employers who have been sued by former employees to attempt to keep their cases out of the courtroom – a public forum. Employers do this by compelling arbitration, which is an alternative method of dispute resolution that takes place in a more private setting. Many employers, when hiring new employees, make those employees sign an arbitration agreement on or about their first day on the job. Many times, when they sign such an agreement, the employees do not really have much of a choice, and do not fully understand what they are giving up. The civil litigation attorneys at Mathis, Marifian & Richter fight for those employees and their right to have a court hear their stories.
