The Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) 2 provides a regulatory scheme for the myriad of employee benefit plans that affect so many workers and their families today. 3 One ERISA issue is whether claims under the Act may be arbitrated or if they must be heard in a judicial forum. The Supreme Court has not yet spoken on this issue, but the district court in Southside Internists Group PC Money Purchase Pension Plan v. Janus Capital Corp. relied on the Supreme Court's determinations of arbitrability in various other cases 4 to conclude that ERISA claims may be arbitrated .
