The decision, which has been the subject of recent press coverage, aligns the Ninth Circuit with existing law in California, providing a higher degree of certainty to employers hedging against potential employment law claims. In general, an employee’s refusal to sign may be ground for refusal to hire or a ground for termination of employment.
