“Workplace employment agreements that ban class actions do not violate federal labor laws, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday. The justices, in a 5-4 decision, sided with employers and the Trump administration’s Justice Department, which last June abandoned the Obama-era support of the National Labor Relations Board’s position.”

And the conservative Court strikes again, further limiting the substantive strength of our nation’s laws concerning labor and employment. My case against William Morris Endeavor Ent. supports that mandatory, pre-dispute arbitration agreements should not be deemed enforceable, especially when when statistical evidence supports an inference of systemic disparate treatment and affirmative relief is sought, which is ultimately used to remedy the past effects of historic discrimination.
