Recently found out at my job that a mandatory arbitration agreement is coming for all employees to sign whether you like it or not. From the start I didn't like the sound of "mandatory" and the description I was given about what it was didn't help me any either.
From what I understand if I were to sign it, it would waive my right to pursue any disputes I have with the company in court, thus making it harder for me to get retributions if I were to ever get wrongly terminated or they do something wrong.
Since I am not union and am working an at will contract with the company I am backed into a corner of having to sign it.
My question here is, is there anything that I am missing about the agreement? Positives? So far I hear nothing but negatives things about it. Is it even constitutional to them to force me to sign something that gives up my rights?
