In Grey v. American Management Services (2012) B233555, employee Brandon Grey applied for a job and as part of his job application entered into an arbitration agreement. As part of an employment contract, he then entered into a narrower arbitration agreement which expressly superseded prior agreements with the parties. The trial court affirmed the arbitration award but the Court of Appeals reversed the judgment finding that the employer could not compel arbitration based on the clause in the job application.
