40th Annual Kenneth M. Piper Lecture 

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

The Metastasization of Mandatory Arbitration
This lecture will present evidence from a new national survey of employers showing that mandatory arbitration has continued to expand and now covers over half of private sector non-union workers. The survey results allow us to draw a picture of where mandatory arbitration has spread, among which employers and in which parts of the country it is most prevalent, and what types of workers are most likely to be covered by it. This metastisization of mandatory arbitration means that more American workers now must bring their employment claims to arbitration than can take their claims to court, with profound implications for how we think about our system of employment law.

Lecturer: Alexander J.S. Colvin, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Diversity, and Faculty Development, and Martin F. Scheinman Professor of Conflict Resolution, Cornell University

Commentators: 
Catherine Ruckleshaus, General Counsel and Program Director, National Employment Law Project
Manuel Cuevas-Trisán, Chief Human Resources Officer and Corporate Vice President, Employment Law & Data Protection, Motorola Solutions, Inc.
