Employment-Related Decisions

The Supreme Court is closing out its term, and the justices have handed down several decisions that require employers to adjust their policies and procedures. We discuss a few of those key opinions—including Muldrow v. City of St. Louis, which expanded Title VII's reach—and look ahead at what is still to come before the term ends this month.

Arbitration Rulings

The Court took up the issue of arbitration in several different decisions this term, all unanimous. For instance, Smith v. Spizzirri continued the trend of Supreme Court decisions giving primacy to the Federal Arbitration Act. In this case, the Court found that Section 3 of the Federal Arbitration Act requires a court to stay its proceedings pending arbitration, and the court lacks discretion to dismiss the suit.

Federal Agencies' Authority Under Review

Additional employment-related cases are still to be decided before the term ends, including two addressing the authority of federal agencies. This includes two cases challenging the Court’s 1984 Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. decision. A full rollback of Chevron deference could significantly rein in the authority of federal agencies.
