Possible Change on the EEOC's Position on Arbitration?
by Michael Fox

Largely overtaken by case law favoring such agreements, it carries little weight except perhaps in the 9th Circuit. But according to a story in the National Law Journal, there is a behind the scenes battle to change it to a more arbitration friendly policy.
