Bloomberg News is reporting that Google has agreed to pay $11 million to settle a class action accusing the company of discriminating against older job applicants.

On July 12, 2019, the Associated Press reported that Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta announced he is resigning following renewed scrutiny of his handling of a 2008 secret plea deal with wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein who is accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls.

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled, in a 5-4 decision (with the conservative justices in the majority), that class arbitration must be explicitly authorized.

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a highly anticipated case, ruled that employers can require as a condition of employment that workers waive their rights to participate in class action lawsuits as part of an arbitration agreement.
