Employee Contracts: Choice of Venue for Litigation

From January 1, 2017 on Labor Law prohibits an employer, as a condition of employment, from requiring an employee who primarily resides and works in California to agree to a provision requiring the employee to adjudicate outside of California legal claims arising in California.  Such a provision may not be a condition of employment.  This law also prohibits an employer from depriving such an employee the substantive protection of California law with respect to a controversy arising in California.  Labor Code Section 925.
