WELA ALERT: SUPREME COURT
Court Will Decide Next Term Whether Section 7 of the NLRA Prohibits Class Action Waivers
On January 13, 2017, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in three cases that present the issue whether section 7 of the NLRA prohibits class action waivers, including Ernst & Young LLP v. Morris, 834 F.3d 975 (9th Cir. 2016). The Court subsequently set the cases over until next term possibly suggesting the current eight Justices might be deadlocked.
