Follies Update

On September 10, 2015, the Court issued an Order denying The Follies’s attempt to move all entertainers’ claims out of Court and into individual arbitrations.  The Follies pointed to an alleged policy it posted on the breakroom bulletin board, mandating arbitration for all workplace claims.  The Court rejected The Follies’s request and ruled that a bulletin board posting by itself could not bind entertainers.  The Follies did not prove entertainers were aware of the policy or its terms.  It did not prove that entertainers understood they were agreeing to the policy simply by continuing to work.  The case is moving forward in U.S. District Court.
