Please join us for An Insider’s View: Navigating Arbitration and Common Appellate Pitfalls in Employment Cases. The first panel, which includes both plaintiff and defense practitioners, as well as two retired judges who serve as arbitrators, will take an in-depth look at arbitration, including such issues as drafting arbitration agreements, new Labor Code section regarding contracts with arbitration forum selection; Armendariz factors; class action waiver; procedural concerns, including under-utilized rules or procedures; picking an arbitrator; arbitrability issues (who decides what?); arbitration discovery rules vs. the CCP; cost-benefit analysis of dispositive motions; motions to compel; and post-arbitration appellate issues.
The second panel will focus on appellate pitfalls to avoid during litigation, as presented by an Associate Justice of the Court of Appeal and a seasoned appellate practitioner.
