MISSOURI COURT STRIKES BLOW TO EMPLOYMENT ARBITRATION AGREEMENTS

Most employers require newly hired employees to sign a number of forms at orientation. Some even require their employees to waive their right to bring a civil lawsuit in the future as a condition of employment. Employers accomplish this goal by including "arbitration agreements" among the stack of documents the new employee signs. Employees are typically so happy to have landed a job-they don't even consider what they are signing.

The U.S. Supreme Court Expands First Amendment Protections

Our Constitution guarantees that that government will make "no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or the press." The importance of this right cannot be overstated, as Benjamin Franklin famously said, "[w]hoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech." A few short weeks ago the Supreme Court of the United States affirmed this important right by protecting government employees from termination when speaking honestly about their jobs.
