Sexual harassment has been a societal problem forever.  In recent years, many victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment in the workplace have been silenced by their employers through arbitration agreements. Arbitration agreements take away of a victim’s right to Court and the use of a jury.  Thus, not only is their claim being adjudicated by one adjudicator instead of a jury of their peers, worse, the filing is not public and thus no one ever learns of the employer’s misconduct. 

In recent years, the Supreme Court of the United States has made rulings making arbitration agreements valid even if they must be signed to obtain employment.  This allows employers to take advantage of their employees’ need for work and lack of legal knowledge to strip them of their voice and force them into a proceeding biased towards corporations.

The rise of the #metoo movement, though, has shed light on this issue.  And, one of its biggest achievements has just occurred., which is the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act, which was passed, on February 10, 2022.  Below is a brief Q&A on the Ending Faced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act:

Customer Reviews

This law firm was extremely helpful and successful in my case. In a matter of 7 months they were able to settle my case! Joshua, Ariella, Vedang, and Iona were my attorneys and Aaron were extremely helpful in my case, always responsive and helped with any questions I had about my case. I was turned down by a few other law firms but this law firm took me seriously and won! I’m very satisfied with all of their services.

They will always answer your calls and call you with updates to keep you informed. I had the pleasure of working with many of them and they are all great individuals. Bibiyan Law Group won two of the two cases I had with them and I’m pretty happy with them. I would recommend you give them a call.

Super nice people. I opened a case with them and it took a while like most cases do but they made it very easy for me. I basically just told them what happened and they handled everything until the case closed while updating me in between and answering questions if I had any. Thank you!

Bibiyan Law Group was by far a great choice to make for my wrongful termination lawsuit. They kept me in the loop with all the details and supported me along the way until I received my settlement. Thank you for everything. Would recommend!
