A Recent Ruling of the United States Supreme Court May Require Employers to Evaluate Current Arbitration Agreements
Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) — The United States Supreme Court has recently made a ruling that changes to an arbitration award under the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) outlined procedures cannot be made based on an expansion of a contract. Arbitration awards must have court confirmation unless the FAA explicitly grants permission to change, correct, or vacate an award to courts. Dallas business and commercial litigation firm, Clouse Dunn Khoshbin (CDK) is seeking to help employers stay mindful of how the ruling may affect their current and future contracts with employees and possible business disputes.
For Those Contractually Bound
Some employers are contractually bound to arbitrate employee disputes under the provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act. The attorneys of the Clouse Dunn Khoshbin firm are encouraging these employers to evaluate the terms of these contracts to assess the provisions for arbitration awards and judicial review. Some may expand narrow grounds under the FAA to include provisions for a judicial review if a party believes the findings of the arbitrator are not based on evidence or are invalid, and go against the recent Supreme Court ruling. The attorneys of the CDK firm have announced their availability to review these types of complex agreements for employers and draft new ones if necessary.
