In this episode of the Employee Survival Guide, Mark explores the new Congressional ban on forced arbitration in sexual assault and sexual harassment cases in the workplace.
The U.S. Senate approved a bill from the House that ends forced arbitration in sexual assault and sexual harassment cases. The bill will be signed into law by President Biden. This is a gigantic win for employees, male and female, as sexual harassment affects everyone.
We have written about Forced Arbitration, also called Mandatory Arbitration, many times, HERE and HERE. The most serious concern with a forced arbitration proceeding is that it is conducted in private and deprives sexual harassment victims of their day in court and the right to receive a trial by jury.
