New Jersey appeals court voids mandatory arbitration policy for workplace disputes, holding that the employee did not agree to the terms.

October 1, 2017
Dugan v. Best Buy, 2017 N.J. Super. Unpub. LEXIS 2053 (N.J. App. Div. (Unpublished) August 11, 2017)

The plaintiff was presented with the employer’s new mandatory arbitration policy via an electronic upload. The plaintiff clicked the box that indicated he read and understood the policy. The box, however, did not specifically state that the plaintiff agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions of the policy. Therefore, the New Jersey Court of Appeals held that the plaintiff was not bound by the mandatory arbitration policy.
