Arbitration Clauses Will Not Be Enforced Against Employees Who Engage in Interstate Commerce……

As part of your company’s onboarding process, all employees sign an agreement making it crystal clear that if there ever is any dispute between them and the company, that dispute must be decided by an arbitrator in arbitration and not by a judge or jury in a court of law.

Your agreement even specifically includes a statement to the effect that employees have a right to consult with an attorney of their own choice before signing the document.
