Victory for Fast Food Workers Against Domino’s Pizza’s Mandatory Arbitration Agreement

The Fast Food Workers Committee, represented by Levy Ratner, prevails in its challenge to Domino’s Pizza’s corporate-wide mandatory arbitration agreement. An NLRB administrative law judge out of Region 29 finds that Domino’s maintenance of the mandatory arbitration agreement, which bans class, collective, and other concerted legal actions regarding nearly all employment-related claims in any forum, violates Section 8(a)(1) of the Act. The Judge rejects Domino’s Noel-Canning-based arguments, including its contention that the Regional Director lacked authority to issue the complaint because the Board was improperly constituted at the time of his appointment. The decision can be found here.
