Although in the Italian Colors case itself it is a dispute which has been denounced by traders, the majority`s decision has important consequences for employment matters. By narrowing the doctrine of effective justification, the Tribunal may have undermined the challenge to class action waivers in arbitration clauses. In other words, just as AT&T Mobility has eliminated most of the challenges of scruples against unfair arbitration agreements for pre-emptive reasons, Italian Colors threatens to eliminate most of the challenges posed on the basis of the doctrine of effective justification. And in this regard, Italian Colors proposes that trends in arbitration law could mean the destruction of legal protection for class actions, which has been at the center of labor law for more than 60 years.28 4. 9 U.S.C§ 3. To be part of the FAA, an agreement must include trade and contain a written arbitration clause. 9 U.S.C§ 2. Anheuser-Busch.61 A well-known American company that has implemented this type of internal dispute resolution procedure is Anheuser-Busch.61 The dispute resolution procedure includes the mandatory conciliation of labor law disputes. However, the procedure begins with the verification of employee complaints by local management, followed by the mediation of potential disputes before the claim proceeds to arbitration. A study by Bales and Plowman showed that the vast majority of claims at these earlier stages are successfully resolved. Between 2003 and 2006, 95% of claims were resolved during the first phase of local verification. Of the 87 claims that went to mediation during this period, 72 or 83 percent were successfully resolved at this stage. In the end, only 15 cases, or 1 per cent of the total number of complaints filed under the proceedings over a four-year period, were subject to arbitration.
Compulsory conciliation is part of the Anheuser Busch procedure, but the vast majority of rights under this system are effectively resolved through mediation and internal dispute resolution procedures. Before the Supreme Court, Tindak Murni did not formally enter into his appearance under the rules of the Court and did not take immediate steps to stay the judicial proceedings referred to in section 10 of the Arbitration Act 2005 (the “Act”). As a result, on March 1, 2017, Juang Setia obtained a default judgment against Tindak Murni for the payment of cash arrears. With regard to the content of these mandatory arbitration procedures, the main result of the CFPB study is that more than 90% of them explicitly prohibit class actions. Given the relatively small amounts of many financial transactions made by consumers and the similarity between claims, the availability of class actions is an essential element of access to justice for consumers` financial claims. . . .
