Arbitration "Fair, Efficient," Says OSU Law Professor

October 12, 2017

Associate Professor of Legal Studies Griffin Pivateau of Oklahoma State University said arbitration in employment contracts is “a more efficient, expeditious, and inexpensive form of justice” in an op-ed in The Oklahoman.                                                                                                                                                

Professor Pivateau’s op-ed comes after last week’s oral arguments in Epic Systems v. Lewis, in which the U.S. Supreme Court will determine the enforceability of arbitration clauses in workplace disputes. He said the court should “embrace” arbitration over class actions, which are “unfair, unrepresentative and unlikely to provide genuine relief to plaintiffs.”
