I need to see real growth in metrics like customer acquisition and trading volume before making a deeper commitment. From what I can tell, the news about EDXM will only be positive for Coinbase if it helps to expand the pie for the crypto industry as a whole. That's right -- they think these 10 stocks are even better buys. Independent nature of EDXM would also restrain the firm from the possibility of conflicts of interest. EDXM needed to prove its utility to stay relevant within the crypto space though. For now, I'm taking a wait-and-see backed crypto exchange with Coinbase. Meanwhile, the EDX exchange would work to accommodate both private and institutional investors.
Agreements Must Clearly Carve Out Certain Claims brings us changes to arbitration agreements at the federal level as well. As the name implies, the law renders invalid a mandatory arbitration agreement, at the employee's option, for claims of sexual assault and sexual harassment. The law does not apply to agreements to arbitrate other employment-related claims including sex discrimination or harassment claims based on any protected characteristic other than sex.
Failure to include a severability clause cannot be cured after the fact. Absent such a clause, courts will decline to rewrite the offensive portions of the parties' arbitration agreement to render it enforceable. Such was the case in Guc v. Raymours Furniture Co. There, the arbitration agreement stated that any claims against Raymours must be made within the day deadline by filing those claims with the arbitration administrator or they would be forever waived.
A a. Noting that the employer's arbitration agreements did not contain a severability clause in Guc, the Appellate Division declined to blue pencil the unconscionable and unenforceable truncated two-year statute of limitations period to commence suit under the NJLAD.
In Skuse v. Pfizer, Inc. The agreement informed the employee that by continuing to be employed for sixty days, she would waive her right to pursue employment claims against Pfizer in court.

There, the New Jersey Supreme Court held that an arbitration agreement, electronically sent to an employee, which unambiguously explained that her continued employment would be deemed assent to the agreement, was sufficient consideration to render the agreement enforceable. Other Considerations An agreement to arbitrate employment disputes should be a stand-alone document for which the employee must acknowledge his or her receipt and review either in writing or by electronic capture means.
And for businesses with multi-state operations or that are geographically near to other states, the agreement should contain both a choice of law provision and a venue provision to ensure the employer is not forced to adjudicate employment claims in a foreign jurisdiction or applying foreign law.
While we anticipate the laws governing employment arbitration agreements will continue to evolve, now is a good time for employers to have counsel review and update their existing employment arbitration agreements. For employers considering whether employment arbitration agreements are appropriate for their workforce, Porzio's Employment Team is available to discuss the benefits and protection that such agreements can provide to their business model.

A blatant example of this might be when a boss knows his underlings pick-on or ridicule another because of his age and does nothing to correct it.

A concise version of disparate impact analysis that it is an established legal doctrine which civil rights advocates use to help enforce a wide range of anti-discrimination laws. Disparate impact arguments usually rely on statistical data to demonstrate that a policy that may seem facially neutral actually has a disproportionate effect on a defined group of people protected by statute from discrimination. As an example, in the banking industry, a bank's requirement that borrowers must prove a certain length of employment history may seem neutral, but in fact might have a disparate impact on disabled persons who may have enough income to cover loan payments even with a limited work history.
