Louise A. Herman, Esq. Featured in Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly Article: “‘Distributors Can’t Be Forced to Arbitrate Misclassification Claim”

Recently, Louise A. Herman, Esq. of Herman Law Group spoke with Eric T.

Herman commented that the pendulum may be starting to swing towards workers in arbitrability disputes. She goes on to state, “Courts are taking another look and recognizing that, in certain cases, they’re not just going to rubber-stamp arbitration agreements. I think that’s a good thing because arbitration is generally not in an employee’s interest.” To read the full article, click here.
