New York Law Journal

David E. Schwartz Emily D. Safko

Three Supreme Court rulings this term impact an employee’s ability to challenge their employer’s actions and an employer’s ability to compel arbitration. Partner David Schwartz and associate Emily Safko discuss how these decisions:

  • Lower the bar for plaintiffs bringing discrimination claims under Title VII and retaliation claims under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
  • Clarify the scope of the transportation workers exception in the Federal Arbitration Act.
