Lareau on Employee's Right to Pursue Claim in Class or Collective Action (PDF)
Select a format
In Lewis v. Epic Systems Corp., the Seventh Circuit agreed with the NLRB that a mandatory agreement requiring employees to waive the right to bring a class or collective action violates the NLRA. After reviewing the respective positions of the Board and the Fifth Circuit in D.R. Horton, this EIA examines the Seventh Circuit's reasoning for departing from the position adhered to by the Second, Fifth, and Eighth Circuits.
After graduating from Boston College Law School in 1968, Pete Lareau began working as a field attorney with the National Labor Relations Board. In 1970, he joined the Baltimore office of the Venable law firm, where he represented management in a variety of legal matters arising under the National Labor Relations Act, including unfair labor practice and representation cases, the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements, arbitration cases arising under those agreements, and miscellaneous federal court litigation. Since leaving Venable in 1995, Mr. Lareau has published widely in the field of labor relations. He is the author of Drafting the Union Contract; NLRA Law and Practice; Volumes 1 and 2 (National Labor Relations Act) of Labor and Employment Law; and Chapter 12A (Collective Bargaining) of Current Legal Forms -- all published by LexisNexis Matthew Bender. In addition, since 2000, he has served as Editor-in-Chief of Bender's Labor and Employment Bulletin, a monthly publication covering all aspects of labor and employment law.
