Novel California Law Takes Shot at Limiting Worker Arbitration

October 31, 2019 | Media News

Professor Sarah Rudolph Cole was recently quoted in an article by Bloomberg News titled, “Novel California Law Takes Shot at Limiting Worker Arbitration.”

“Despite the FAA’s preemptive power, states have continued passing laws to limit arbitration. New York, New Jersey, Vermont, and Maryland enacted measures over the past two years, partly in response to the #MeToo movement and concern about the victims of workplace harassment being silenced.”

“Every time a state tries to do something, it’s been viewed as preempted,” Cole, who also serves as the director of the school’s Program on Dispute Resolution, said.
