AB 51: Restrictions to Arbitration Agreements in Employment

Category: Webinars on Demand

AB 51 (Labor Code § 432.6) prohibits employers, starting January 1, 2020, from requiring any applicant or employee to submit any discrimination claims covered under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (not just sexual harassment) and any claims under the Labor Code (including wage and hour and other protections) to mandatory arbitration, as a condition of employment, continued employment, or the receipt of any employment-related benefit.  This new law also prohibits retaliation against applicants or employees for refusing to waive their rights to pursue these kinds of claims in court.  Please join our webinar to hear more about the impacts of AB 51 on your School, including learning what limited exceptions apply to Labor Code § 432.6 and how this new law could affect your hiring procedures moving forward. 

Who Should Attend?
Heads of School, Human Resources Professionals, Advancement Officers, and other Administrators.
