Oracle Class Wage Question Likely Headed To Arbitrator
Law360, San Francisco (November 7, 2017, 10:17 PM EST) -- A California federal judge said Tuesday she’ll likely grant an ex-Oracle worker’s request to let an arbitrator decide which of two employment contracts — one that allows for classwide arbitration or one that doesn’t — govern her claims over sales commission pay.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Elizabeth D. Laporte said at a hearing in San Francisco she would likely grant Marcella Johnson’s motion to compel arbitration against Oracle America Inc., and that an arbitrator would decide whether the first employment contract Johnson signed, which allows for class arbitration, is nullified by a second contract with a provision prohibiting the practice.
