Marlton, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/30/2017 -- Employees who have been discriminated against at work may sometimes be forced to choose arbitration as the sole means of settling a dispute, rather than taking the case to court. As a condition of employment, some employers require their employees to agree to mandatory arbitration of employment disputes. To be legally enforceable, he language in the arbitration clause must clearly indicate that the employee is waiving their right to a trial by jury. Individuals who need assistance in deciphering the arbitration clause in their employment agreement, or who would like legal counsel to determine their rights under an arbitration agreement, are invited to contact the Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC.
In litigation, the arguments involve who wins, and what is won. When employment disputes are placed into arbitration, the advantages lean heavily towards the employer. For this reason, employers favor arbitration. When employees are required to arbitrate their claims, their likelihood of prevailing plummets. And, even when employees win at arbitration, they are awarded much less money than the employees who win in state and federal court. An independent study performed by researchers at Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations demonstrated that arbitration had a significant effect on the outcomes for employees. Arbitration decreased the odds of an employee win by 59% and decreased the award amount by 35%.
