Lynne Bernabei Published Works

The American Association of Justice’s Trial Magazine published Lynne Bernabei and Devin Wrigley’s article, “A Course Correction,” in its September 2021 workers’ rights issue. Lynne and Devin analyze a trend through which courts are more carefully scrutinizing nondisclosure and noncooperation provisions in settlements and employment agreements, to advance the public’s right to know information related to widespread discrimination and misconduct in U.S. workplaces.

The Independent published an article by Lynne Bernabei and Kristen Sinisi about the innovative ways that states, local governments, and progressive companies are closing the gender wage gap, in the absence of comprehensive federal legislation.  Their article, published on Equal Pay Day, evaluates the United States’ progress in narrowing pay disparities between women and men.  It discusses how salary history bans have contributed to increased pay for women and employees of color, and explores the business case for eliminating the pay gap.

Alan Kabat Published Works

Law360 published the analysis by Alan Kabat and Devin Wrigley of a recent and important college tenure case, Tudor v. Southeastern Oklahoma State University, which upheld a jury verdict in favor of a transgender Native American faculty member who was denied tenure because of bias against transgender individuals. Alan and Devin discussed how the Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit correctly rejected the University’s argument that there should be deference to academic tenure decisions. They also discussed how the Court held that expert testimony on the tenure process was properly admitted at trial, including an expert analysis of comparators (others who did get tenure). They also discussed why the Court correctly awarded reinstatement with tenure to Dr. Tudor, in order to remedy the discrimination.

Law360 published a commentary by Alan Kabat and Samuel Finn, “Congress Must Act To Curb Workplace Arbitration Pacts”. They discussed the efforts by state legislatures to ban arbitration of employment disputes, and how the Federal Arbitration Act has been used to preempt those state laws. They also discussed the multiple pending bills in Congress that would amend the Federal Arbitration Act to exclude employment and other civil rights claims from mandatory arbitration.
