Several decisions that came out of the Supreme Court of the United States (“SCOTUS”) last term have significantly altered the landscape of labor and employment law, including decisions on the use of arbitration agreements for wage and hour class and collective actions (Epic Systems Corp.), mandatory union dues for public-sector employees (Janus) and discrimination against same-sex couples based on sincerely-held religious beliefs (Masterpiece Cakeshop).
This course, presented by Bryan L. Arbeit, Senior Associate at Wigdor LLP, will provide employment lawyers and inside counsel with an in-depth review of these recent SCOTUS decisions as well as a discussion of the labor and employment issues to be decided by SCOTUS during the 2018-19 term.
