These include compensation for emotional burdens and punitive damages, which are aimed at punishing the wrongdoer and preventing the same problem from happening to others. If you signed an arbitration agreement before filing an appeal, the court will advise you that the dispute must be resolved by arbitration. Your case will only remain in court if you have not signed the agreement or if there is a violation of your rights. At the same time, California law requires that an arbitration agreement contain certain conditions to be enforceable. For example, the employer must bear all the costs of arbitration, including fees for arbitrators, which can easily reach tens of thousands of dollars. And an arbitration agreement cannot restrict an employee`s rights to „discovery“ or damages that can be repaired. In addition, in recent years, state and federal courts in California courts have refused to impose provisions in arbitration agreements that prevent employees from bringing a class action. However, no court in California has ruled that it is inappropriate to require a person to sign an arbitration agreement. You should be able to choose an arbitrator in the same way, as the arbitrator has a lot of power and you will not be able to challenge a decision made. You and your employer must be able to refuse an arbitrator without just cause.
Many employers are accommodating to their expectations of their employees at the time of hiring. Others may bury forced arbitration agreements in different types of working documents. To prevent them from unsnowingly renouncing rights, a staff member should carefully read all documents, regardless of their duration. . . .
