Face­book nixes arbitration rule for mis­con­duct cases

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - NATION -

Face­book is drop­ping a re­quire­ment for manda­tory arbitration of sex­ual mis­con­duct al­le­ga­tions, ac­ced­ing to a de­mand re­cently pressed by other Sil­i­con Val­ley tech­nol­ogy work­ers.

The move at Face­book means that em­ploy­ees no longer have to sub­mit to pri­vate arbitration, which kept mis­con­duct al­le­ga­tions se­cret.

Face­book will now also re­quire ex­ec­u­tives at the di­rec­tor level and above to dis­close any dat­ing re­la­tion­ships with fel­low em­ploy­ees.
