This article explores the arguments presented by member firms and registered employees, and outlines what arbitration panels have decided. Laurence S. Moy. Pearl Zachlewski, Linda Neilan, and Katherine Blostein. The Neutral Corner, Newsletter of FINRA Neutrals, Volume 1, 2008.
Since the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX), arbitrators handling employment claims may be faced with a throny question concerning SOX whistleblower claims: Should a SOX claim be litigated in court or arbitrated? Ultimately, the question comes to whether SOX whistleblower claims constitute "employment discrimination" claims, and are thus exempt from arbitration under Rule 13201 of the Code of Arbitration Procedure for Industry Disputes (Code). This article explores the arguments presented by member firms and registered employees and outlines what arbitration panels have decided.
Whose Clients Are They? Contacting Putative Class Members
Cara E. Greene and Jill Maxwell, Labor and Employment Law, Vol. 35, No. 3, Spring 2007 www.abanet.org/labor
The prosecution and defense of class actions involve an abundance of ethical considerations. Attorneys must balance zealous advocacy with the governing rules of professional responsibility. For instance, ex parte communications are often an effective and cost-conscious way to glean information, but attorneys on both sides must consider whether contact with putative class members is permissible and, if so, what form that contact may take. With a little forethought, however, lawyers can ensure that they do not overstep ethics rules when contacting putative class members.
