A bill (A2252) reintroduced in the Assembly on February 11 seeks to prohibit employers from requiring employees to sign pre-dispute arbitration agreements, as well as other waiver agreements (such as the waiver of a jury trial, statutes of limitations, certain damages, discovery, etc.) as a condition of their hiring. The bill would not, however, prohibit employers and employees from agreeing to arbitrate claims after a dispute arises. Similar bills have been unsuccessfully introduced by the state legislature for over a decade.
