Welcome back to the MBA WGP-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.
MBA Essential Tip:
It's becoming more common for companies to require their employees to sign an agreement that they will not initiate a lawsuit against the company. Instead, as a condition of employment, all work-related disputes must go to binding arbitration or nonbinding mediation. This provides a less expensive and faster method to resolve disputes than a jury trial. Under some state laws, arbitration agreements are not enforceable unless they contain certain protections for employees, such as a neutral arbitrator. But it's interesting to note that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld mandatory arbitration of employment claims, even those based on federal statutes.
