Huckaba and Weckesser show that, despite the Supreme Court`s statements, arbitration agreements remain governed by state law and must scrupulously respect the principles of national law. They also illustrate that the courts will place a burden on employers to establish that arbitration agreements are valid and applicable. Chase Customer ServiceP.O.

Like the Huckaba court, the 4th Circuit found that the Federal Arbitration Act did not “change the substantive principles of state contract law” and therefore South Carolina regulates the existence of a valid arbitration agreement. Consistent with these principles, the court found that the arbitration agreement clearly existed between the applicant and Jeffry Knight, Inc., who was not a party to the case.
The 4th Circle also rejected Knight Enterprises` argument that it could nevertheless impose the arbitration agreement on the doctrines of error or error of a Scrivener or a third party beneficiary. In this regard, the court held that, because the arbitration agreement appeared to be a “form of liability contract,” any ambiguity against the author should be interpreted and federal arbitration policy “is not armour for Knight Enterprises here.” You can send the rejection letter at any time. The worst thing they can say is no. For the military, you will be automatically disconnected as a thank you to the Military Law of Lending (MLA). On June 11, 2018, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Huckaba v. Ref-Chem, L.P., overturned a district court order that requires arbitration of legal action. In this case, the applicant had signed an arbitration agreement with her employer, Ref-Chem, in which both parties agreed to refer to a binding arbitration procedure “all claims and disputes between them”. Later, when Huckaba sued Ref-Chem in federal court, Ref-Chem moved to force arbitration and concluded the arbitration agreement it had signed. The regional court granted the application for duress and dismissed the case until arbitration. For employers implementing arbitration programs in the light of Epic Systems, Huckaba and Weckesser are a reminder that procedures for obtaining workers` consent to conciliation must be airtight, meet state requirements and allow the employer to prove a valid agreement, perhaps years later.
For employers with existing work arbitration procedures, these cases should be reviewed to ensure that arbitration agreements designate the right unit of enterprise, that they have been executed each other, or that they contain clear language that mutual enforcement is not necessary and that they comply with all other contractual formalities.
