Will Hannum Quoted In Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Article Regarding Unenforceable Arbitration Clause

Eric T. Berkman recently published an article in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly focusing on the First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling against an employer who denied a pregnant woman a job as a result of ambiguities of the mandatory arbitration clause.

In this article, Eric consulted with William Hannum who advised employers to train managers not to ask risky or inappropriate questions during the interview process.  “I suspect that these ‘bad facts’ did not help [this] employer’s case,” Will stated.  He also suggests that employers require job applicants to provide actual signatures confirming their assent to an arbitration agreement.  This article also discusses implications such ambiguities may have on job applicants, employees and employers.
