Rebecca Stephens, Moderator, Life After Epic Systems: How Employers, Employees, and Arbitrators Are Adapting to the World of Class Action Waivers
Take an in-depth look at the practical effects of the Epic Systems Corp v. Lewis Supreme Court decision.
In May 2018, the United States Supreme Court issued the landmark Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis decision, resolving a circuit split by holding that arbitration agreements containing class action waivers are enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act. 584 U.S. ___ (Dkts. 16-285, 16-300, 16-307). While many articles and programs have analyzed the decision’s reasoning and holding, this program will address the decision’s practical effects.
Our panelists will discuss emerging issues post-Epic Systems, including:
- The decision’s impact on employees, employers, practitioners, and arbitrators
- New multi-plaintiff litigation strategies and trends
- How the case has been applied by other courts
