BNC Mortgage Employees Win Appellate Court Battle

A California appellate court won't enforce an arbitration clause against former employees who allege that they were harassed out of their jobs after blowing the whistle on illegal lending practices. The employee's attorney was quoted in this article as follows:

“This is another victory for the average worker against large employers who try to limit access to justice by forcing their new hires to sign arbitration agreements,” said the employees' attorney Gary Gwilliam. “That's exactly what happened to these six women, who complained about illegal lending practices, and ended up being victimized by the company they were trying to protect. Forcing them into arbitration would only be a further injustice at the hands of BNC.”
