Hugh Baran Discusses Economic Cost of Circumventing Courts

Fellow Hugh Baran (’19), a staff attorney at the National Employment Law Project, was interviewed for an article in The Washington Post about a report he generated highlighting the costs to low-paid workers of employer restrictions on dispute resolution paths (“There’s a Little-Known Employment Contract Provision Enabling Billions of Dollars in Wage Theft Each Year,” Feb. 13). “People look at this issue as kind of a procedural one, but the reality is it’s a substantive economic issue,” Hugh said. Hugh also authored an op-ed for the Morning Consult website urging adoption of the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal Act (“Forced Arbitration Enables Employers To Evade New Coronavirus Paid Leave Law,” March 30).
