Corporate America Uses Arbitration Provisions to Divide and Conquer Employee Employment Claims – Los Angeles Employment Attorneys Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik Appears on CNN “Money for Lunch”

by Norman B. Blumenthal on November 7, 2012

“An employer will try to get an employee to work as many hours as possible for as little wages as possible. The best way for an employer to do that is to classify the employee as a salaried employee to qualify the employee as exempt from Fair Labor Standard Acts purview,” stated Los Angeles Employment Lawyer Norman Blumenthal while appearing as a guest on the CNN radio talk show “Money for Lunch.”

When an employee brings a wage and hour complaint against an employer, the arbitration clause the employer buried in the employee’s employment contract, forces the employee to go it alone. This in effect, denies the employee adequate legal representation and may result in retaliation against the employee. There are strengths in numbers.

“Because Republican administrations lean toward employers, and Democrats lean toward employees, an employee has to be felony stupid to vote for a Republican administration,” Blumenthal pointed out.
