Carlton Fields Class Action Survey Cited in Yahoo Finance

The 2015 Carlton Fields Class Action Survey was cited in a Yahoo Finance article about a trio of labor and employment cases in the U.S. Supreme Court known as Epic Systems Corp v. Lewis. According to the article, “the suits pose the question of whether employers can force employees, as a condition of employment, to agree to submit almost any federal legal claim they have against the company to individual arbitration, ultimately waiving their right to bring class actions or other joint legal proceedings.”

The article referenced the survey’s findings on arbitration clauses:  “In the first three years after the court’s pro-arbitration ruling in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion in 2011, the number of companies using arbitration clauses to preclude employee class actions jumped from 16.1% to 42.7%, according to a survey by Carlton Fields Jorden Burt.”
