The New Jersey Supreme Court recently upheld an arbitration agreement which was distributed to employees through a series of emails and the employer’s online training module. In Skuse v. Pfizer, Inc., the Court rejected the argument that electronic communications are inappropriate means for such distribution. While the Court’s approval of electronic distribution will be its most-discussed aspect, however, the decision should also remind employers that arbitration agreements in New Jersey, regardless of form, will be enforced only if they are clear and unambiguous.
