- he talked about how there was a employer->contractor->employee chain
- employer->employee NO forced arbitration agreement
- contractor->employee YES forced arbitration agreement
- employee (and who?) sues employer+contractor
- contractor invokes clause..
- drop contractor from suit
- EMPLOYER tries to invoke arbitration - how?
- claims that the contractor->employee clause was somehow meant to apply to them
- intro: so, many companies include clauses in their employment contracts that force employees to use a company-mandated arbitration panel, limiting the employees right to recourse via lawsuits. this both saves companies money and also has a higher likelihood of their victory. it's a tactic which puts power in the hands of the business and takes it away from working people.
- [something on google ending forced arbitration? tanuja?]
- But even those companies which don't have enforcing clauses might have the ability to take advantage of forced arbitration agreements in the case of contractors.
- chris, would you mind introducing yourself and letting us know how you're involved?
- so you were telling us about a scenario where some contracting employees were trying to obtain a lawsuit against their employer, even though they had no forced arbitration agreement with the employer. what was the background there?
- is this a common loophole? are you aware of other cases? [if no: well it seems like it could be, companies are certainly facing the same pressures and will consider the same options]
- it seems intentionally designed to shield the employer. do you think this was an intentional strategy?
