Opalinski v. Robert Half International Inc., 12-4444

The availability of classwide arbitration is a substantive "question of arbitrability" to be decided by a court absent clear agreement otherwise. Here, the employment agreements are silent as to the availability of classwide arbitration or whether the question should be submitted to the arbitrator, so the district court therefore erred in ruling that the availability of classwide arbitration is a question for the arbitrator.
