Arbitration Agreements have become a common fixture in many employment contracts. By submitting to arbitration, employers and employees agree to have all or some disputes resolved by a neutral third party who will hear the evidence from both sides and render a decision. Arbitration is viewed by many employers as significantly more efficient and cost-effective than traditional litigation.
The law surrounding arbitration agreements continues to evolve both in the courts and in administrative agencies. McMahon Berger routinely advises clients on the factors to be considered when pursing an arbitration agreement, including current court and administrative decisions. The applicability of the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) and state arbitration and contract law have the potential to present significant obstacles to an enforceable arbitration agreement. Our attorneys assist clients to develop employment-related arbitration agreements tailored to their needs and compliant with the laws where their clients do business.
McMahon Berger brings its extensive knowledge of creating arbitration agreements when the enforceability of arbitration agreements are challenged. Our attorneys have successfully represented employers before state and federal courts throughout the United States in enforcing arbitration agreements.
