SB 1241 ensures California law governs arbitration proceedings on employment contracts
August 31, 2016

Sacramento – The state Legislature today approved a major arbitration bill by Senator Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) to protect California workers from two of the worst kinds of provisions found buried in arbitration clauses.  The bill now awaits the Governor’s signature.
