AAA Yearbook on Arbitration & the Law - 25th Edition - Chapter 2 - Arbitral Jurisdiction
2.01 Scope of the Arbitration Agreement
Heinen v. Northrop Grumman Corp., 671 F.3d 669 (7th Cir. 2012) Employment arbitration read broadly to include all job related claims.
Former employee brought a failure to pay promised relocation expenses claim against his employer in state court. After the case was removed to federal court on diversity of citizenship grounds, the U.S. District Court dismissed the action and ordered arbitration. The employee appealed and the Court of Appeals held that the District Court's order for arbitration was a final appealable decision and that the employee's demand for additional relocation benefits was subject to arbitration.
