“Seventh Circuit Holds EEOC Right-to-Sue Letter Does Not Trump a Binding Arbitration Agreement”

Christina Gallo of Carlton Fields has authored this article, available at JD Supra, discussing the Seventh Circuit’s decision in Melton v. Pavilion Behavioral Health System. As the article notes, the court “found that the EEOC’s right-to-sue letter did not override the arbitration agreement; it merely allowed Melton to move beyond the administrative process and pursue any rights that he may have in court — rights that Melton had waived by previously entering into the binding arbitration agreement.”
