NLRB Sees Opportunity For Class-Waiver Win At High Court
The article, “NLRB Sees Opportunity For Class-Waiver Win At High Court,” featured on Law360, discussed how the timing of the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) request for the U.S. Supreme Court to review whether class action waivers in arbitration agreements are enforceable appears designed to capitalize on the high court's current composition and recent appeals court decisions supporting the NLRB's stance in a tussle with D.R. Horton.
Steven Bernstein said there will be a lot of people watching to see what the court does.
