Firm Invalidates Deceptive Arbitration Agreements In IT Class Action

March 15th, 2020 Victoria Breese

The Working Solutions teamJudge Woods of the U.S. District Court Southern District of New York recently granted our firm’s motion. Our firm moved to invalidate deceptive arbitration agreements on behalf of IT workers in a class-action lawsuit. The Court found that the IT employer’s new arbitration policy was instituted in bad faith. IT workers were required to sign the arbitration agreement in order to keep their jobs, essentially giving them no choice but to sign away their rights in court. Because the IT employer’s communications with class action members were improperly coercive and misleading, the Court invalidated the arbitration agreement altogether. Judge Woods also called the opposing counsel’s arguments against our motion “ill-conceived” and “nonsensical.” Our firm is committed to continuing to fight for the rights of IT workers in Court.
