California Appellate Court Issues Major Decision on Enforceability of Arbitration Agreements in Employment Context

Mayer Brown Legal Update
The California Court of Appeals has issued a decision in a putative class action that roundly rejects virtually every argument used by the California plaintiffs bar to circumvent the US Supreme Court’s decision in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion. The decision in Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles, LLC may signal that California state courts will fall in line with post-Concepcion federal precedent and begin enforcing arbitration agreements that require individual arbitration—just as their counterparts on the federal bench have been doing.
