    Long-Awaited Website Accessibility Ruling

    Arbitration Agreements Can Remain Confidential, for Now

    The recent decision by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in Dish Network, LLC means that, at least for now, employers and employees may agree on conducting their dispute resolution on a confidential basis without violating the National Labor Relations Act. But, with the NLRB set to flip again to Democrat control as current appointees’ terms expire, businesses wishing to utilize confidentiality provisions should account for the distinct possibility that the NLRB will overturn Dish Network, LLC and similar decisions.
