Employers invite workers to sign an arbitration agreement and waive the right to take legal action on employment-related issues. When a worker signs an agreement, it means that the worker must assert all rights against his employer through arbitration and not through legal action. Employee arbitration agreements may come back to follow you. That`s how. In 1998, the Federal Court of Appeals, which governs the State of California, issued its decision to Duffield v. Roberts- Stevenson Company (9. 1998) 144 F.3d 1182. The Duffield court ruled that the Civil Rights Act of 1991 prohibited the application of mandatory employment contracts to settle claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or state anti-discrimination laws equivalent to those of the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”).
