Why does my employer want me to sign an arbitration agreement?
An arbitration agreement waives your right to sue your employer in court.
I just started a new job, and my employer asked me to sign a bunch of forms, including an Arbitration Agreement. The agreement says I'm giving up my right to sue over anything that happens during my employment. This seems fishy to me: I've spent all of one day on the job, and they already want me to give up my rights. Does this mean they are planning to break the law? Why do they want me to sign this?
