Shirley Lin Discusses Limits on Arbitration in the #MeToo Age

Former Fellow Shirley Lin (‘11), professor at the New York University School of Law, was quoted in Bloomberg Law News on numerous states’ propositions to limit forced arbitration in settling workplace harassment disputes (“Federal Arbitration Law Poses Barrier to #MeToo Era State Laws,” Aug. 6). “States are addressing forced arbitration as an issue of public well-being and concern,” Shirley said. “The most straightforward response would be for Congress to pass legislation amending the Federal Arbitration Act to clearly exempt all labor, employment, civil rights, and consumer actions.”
