Legal Alert: Supreme Court Finds CBA Requires Arbitration of ADEA Claims


The U.S. Supreme Court has held that an arbitration provision in a collective bargaining agreement (CBA), which clearly and unmistakably requires union members to arbitrate Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) claims, is enforceable as a matter of federal law.

Interstate/Johnson Lane Corp. that nothing in the ADEA precludes arbitration of age discrimination claims.
