Arbitration agreement enforcement bill gets initial hearing

The Senate Small Business and Industry Committee, chaired by Sen. Denny Hoskins, today heard SB 154, a bill to allow arbitration agreements between employers and at-will employees to be enforced.

The bill is sponsored by Sen. Tony Luetkemeyer, an attorney and newly-elected state senator representing Buchanan and Platte counties.

The bill has been changed from versions in previous years by specifically providing that non-disclosure agreements, often a component of an arbitration agreement, would not apply with respect to claims of sexual harassment, sexual assault, or discrimination claims.

Associated Industries of Missouri supports the bill. No action was taken on the bill in today’s hearing.
