James Weliky Recently Quoted on Recent Developments in Mandatory Arbitration Law
James Weliky was recently quoted in an article appearing in both Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and New England In House, published July 26, 2012 and September 10, 2012 respectively. The article examines the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit’s recent decision in Gove v. Career Systems Development Corporation (Docket No. 11-2468, July 17, 2012), focusing on whether a mandatory arbitration clause included in an application for employment was enforceable against an unsuccessful applicant. Finding the language of the clause ambiguous, the court ruled it was reasonable for an applicant to believe the clause would only apply to them if they were hired by the company, thus the clause was unenforceable against them. Mr. Weliky was quoted specifically on the utility of the decision for employees and their attorneys. The full text of the article can be found here.
