Resolving Sexual Misconduct Disputes in the Workplace: What Now?

Now that the United States has banned the use of pre-dispute arbitration in sexual harassment and sexual assault cases, we need to re-evaluate how these kinds of cases are best resolved. Will we see a rise in cases making their way to the courts, or will we see mediation emerge as the go-to method for resolving these cases?

On April 13, 2022, our online colloquium examined the specific elements of the EFASASHA (Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act) legislation and discuss its impact on how these cases will be handled in the workplace moving forward.  We will also discuss the role of mediation in resolving these cases, and how to determine which cases should proceed to the courts.
