Abbey was the co-author of a Calfee Labor & Employment First Alert discussing the Supreme Court’s ruling, which made it legal for an employer to require its employees, as a condition of their continued employment, to agree to arbitrate claims against the company through one-on-one arbitrations, and thus to give up their right to pursue claims as a class.
