Not Be Violated, Not be Infringed, Make No Rule

Can you imagine if a company contracted you in a job in which the agreement said your services must be paid for and “shall not be violated”? And then an arbitration board that works for the company decides they won’t pay you for some of your work, AND claims with a straight face the contract said it was ok?

Can you imagine if your company contracted a job in which the agreement said your services must be paid for, the right to pay “shall not be infringed”? And then an arbitration board that works for the company decides to infringe that constraint, AND claims with a straight face the contract said it was ok?

Can you imagine if your company contracted a job in which the agreement said the contractor “shall make no rule” governing your wish to pray occassionaly at the job site? And then an arbitration board that works for the hiring company makes a rule you cannot pray, AND claims the contract cleary said it was ok?

That’s our Supreme Court’s behavior.
