Is your professional network as diverse as the workforce around you? If not, you could be missing important opportunities for your career. We all face challenges in making meaningful connections, especially with people who differ from us in significant ways. Few of us consider the impacts of these missed connections. Even fewer know how to recognize and overcome.
This session will help you assess and improve the breadth and depth of your professional network. You can remove the artificial barriers that may be keeping you from your next mentor, star hire, or big customer. Please register here for this upcoming meeting.
Arbitration Agreement Ruling
The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Dominic Oliveira, owner and independent contractor, in an arbitration clause case. The wage class action case, New Prime Inc. v. Oliveira, U.S., No. 17-340, was mentioned in the Oct 23rd issue of The Light Post. The Court has ruled that legal disputes between carriers and independent contractors cannot be forced into private arbitration even if their contractor agreements include an arbitration cause. It is an exception to the 100 year old Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) which is generally presumed o favor employers.
While the decision was 8-0, it is narrow in scope and leave many questions unanswered. It focuses on the trucking industry and it is unclear whether it would apply to truckers who do not cross state lines. However, it Is considered to be the first of several as the court has taken at least three arbitration cases this term.
