Los Angeles Times: Tech workers’ fight against forced arbitration gets a boost in Congress

Los Angeles Times: Tech workers’ fight against forced arbitration gets a boost in Congress. “The technology industry isn’t known for its activist culture, but after years of relative silence some workers are beginning to challenge practices they consider unfair, such as mandatory arbitration. A push is underway across the sector to end companies’ long-held practice of forcing staffers to take workplace disputes to arbitration instead of suing. Workers at Google persuaded the search giant to drop its requirement that employees waive their right to bring disputes against it to court, starting March 21.”
