The California Supreme Court will hear arguments Thursday in a wage-and-hour case that attorneys say could reduce the number of workplace class actions in the state by clarifying the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent pro-arbitration jurisprudence.

In Arshavir Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles LLC, attorneys will make their arguments in a case that presents an opportunity for guidance on the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2011 Concepcion decision and how it affects the enforceability of class waivers in employment disputes in the state.

CLS is represented in the case by David F. Faustman and Yesenia M. Gallegos.
