U.S. Supreme Court Tackles Arbitration Case.

Ogletree Deakins • August 23, 2010
On June 21, with Justice Antonin Scalia writing for a 5-4 majority, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an important decision for employers that are utilizing or are considering adopting arbitration agreements. The Court addressed the enforceability of an arbitration agreement (included as part of an employment contract), which stated that the arbitrator determines the enforceability of the contract. According to the majority, because the employee in this case challenged his employment contract as a whole, rather than specifically chal-lenging the provision in the agreement granting the arbitrator the authority to determine enforceability (the "delegation provision"), the agreement to arbitrate must be evaluated by the arbitrator, not a court.

The Potential Impact of Today's Supreme Court's 5-4 Decision on Arbitrability.

Ogletree Deakins • June 22, 2010
It is never too much a surprise when the Supreme Court reverses the 9th Circuit, nor in recent years is it a surprise when the Court hands down a decision favoring arbitration of disputes, even in employment law matters. In a narrow sense, that is the substance of today's 5-4 decision in Rent-A-Center, West, Inc. v. Jackson, (S.Ct. 6/21/10) [pdf].

Employers Handed Narrow Arbitration Decision Victory.

Fisher Phillips • June 22, 2010
In a narrow 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court handed employers yet another victory in the area of employment arbitration agreements today by holding that, in many circumstances, the issue of whether the agreement is enforceable should be made by an arbitrator and not a court of law.
