In a victory for employers, the Second Circuit issued a decision enforcing an arbitration agreement and denying plaintiff’s request to pursue class-wide litigation of her Title VII claims in court in Parisi v. Goldman, Sachs & Co., No. 11-5229, 2013 WL 1149751 (2d. Cir. March 21, 2013). This decision provides proactive employers within the Second Circuit’s boundaries with a tool to potentially decrease certain kinds of class action litigation through carefully drafted arbitration agreements.
