“Supreme Court rules that companies can require workers to accept individual arbitration”
On Monday, the U.S Supreme Court ruled that businesses can prohibit their workers from joining together to settle employment disputes. The justices ruled 5-4, with a majority vote by the court’s conservative members.
This affects nearly 25 million employees who now must settle disputes through individual arbitration. Previously, the Obama administration ruled in favor of employees, allowing them to band together to form class action lawsuits against their employers.
