Garrett Jensen, an attorney in CDF's Orange County office, recently authored the article: "Class Action?! Despair Not: Arbitration Agreement Will Improve Our Lot," for the California Employment Law Letter, March 11, 2013 issue.
Jensen covers key issues in this article that apply to the following scenario:
