Des Moines Register: A onetime Taco Bell employee from Iowa is taking her fight against her former employer to the U.S. Supreme Court. The nation’s highest court agreed in November to hear the case of Robyn Morgan v. Sundance Inc., which operates more than 150 Taco Bell franchises around the country. In a class-action lawsuit filed in 2018, Morgan accused Sundance of telling her and other employees to work off the clock and cheating them out of overtime. The issue before the high court is whether Sundance waited too long to invoke a contract clause requiring Morgan to address her complaint through private arbitration rather than litigation.
