12th Annual Advanced Wage and Hour Seminar
May 6, 2016
Oakland, CA 94607

All I Needed to Know About Arbitration I Learned Before Lunch
If your class representative client has signed an arbitration agreement, fret not: this panel is here to help, with updates on developments in gateway issues of arbitrability, FAA exclusion arguments, class arbitration, class/collective/representative waivers, and post-Iskanian and Sakkab fallout. Plus a history lesson, a chance to issue-spot, and a dancing bear.  Okay, maybe not a dancing bear.
