  • U.S. SUPREME COURT DECIDES IMPORTANT QUESTION ABOUT ARBITRATION Many employers require prospective employees to sign agreement mandating that the employee submit any employment dispute to arbitration. Arbitration has few remedies and often the cards are stacked against the employee, particularly when certain arbitrators routinely rule in favor of the employer. In this case, the U.S. Supreme Court spelled out when an employee can challenge a provision that gives the arbitrator the right to determine the enforceability of the contract rather than the court.
  • Political Subdivision Not Immune From Claim Brought By Employee Political subdivisions enjoy immunity from many types of negligence claims. This immunity is created by statute in Chapter 2744 of the Ohio Revised Code.
