Based on a 5 to 4 vote, Supreme Court lawyers ruled that employers may enforce individual arbitration agreements that restrict the ability for workers to collectively pursue allegations of federal workplace law violations.

An additional danger brought forward by the #Metoo Movement is that some arbitration clauses allow employers to conceal sexual abuse and harassment by executives.
