Women’s associations from eight elite law schools are joining the fight against forced mandatory arbitration among legal employers, releasing a joint statement today calling for an end to such agreements within the legal profession, Law.com reports. They say mandatory arbitration is an advantage to employers because it eliminates litigation as an option for employees who have been subjected to discrimination or other workplace misconduct. They also say they would no longer accept any funding from firms that require employees to sign such agreements or that do not disclose whether they use mandatory arbitration.
