Raniere v. Citigroup Inc. (Second Circuit)

The district court in this case declared that agreements to arbitrate wage and hour claims on an individual basis are “per se unenforceable” under the Fair Labor Standards Act’s collective-action provision. On behalf of a coalition of business groups, we filed an amicus brief successfully arguing that the district court erred because the FLSA does not evince a clear congressional intent to preclude individual arbitration of employment claims. Our brief also explained how individual arbitration offers significant benefits for businesses, their employees, and the national economy as a whole.
