It’s now been almost a full work week since Munger renounced its arbitration agreement. But there’s reason to suspect that other firms have similar agreements, and are either trying to wait this entire thing out or are still deciding what to do.
Enter some very smart and organized Berkeley Law students, who just yesterday wrote a letter to the dean asking the law school to prohibit employers from recruiting on campus if the employers “require any employee, including associates, staff, or summer associates, to agree as a general condition of employment: (1) a mandatory arbitratoin agreement, or (2) a non-disclosure agreement that covers discrimination, harassment, or other workplace misconduct.”
It’s a smart move for a number of reasons, and if law students at other schools make similar requests, their collective action could effect some significant changes.
