Restoring Justice for Workers Act
This bill prohibits predispute arbitration agreements that require arbitration of an employment dispute.
It allows a postdispute arbitration agreement if the employee enters into it voluntarily without coercion and is informed in writing of rights and protections under such agreement. An employer may not retaliate against an employee for refusing to enter into an agreement for arbitrating an employment dispute.
