Employees must sign an aggreement requiring employment disputes to be settled by binding arbitration.
Erik Baker suffered a seizure and was fired by Waffle House.
He filed a discrimination charge with EEOC alleging that his discharge violated Title 1 of the Americans with Disabilities Act or 1990.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) asked for backpay, reinstatement, compensatory damages, punitive damages for malicious and reckless conduct.
Does an agreement between an employer and an employee to arbituate employment-related disputes bar EEOC from helping, even if the employer has allegedly violated Title 1 of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990?
EEOC will continue to advocate and choose their cases, they will continue to validate arbitration as an alternative for work place disputes.
