Code, § 925, a forum-selection clause is voidable by an employee if it is contained in a contract that is modified on or after January 1, 2017, irrespective of whether the modification was to the forum-selection clause or another provision; [2]-A trial court correctly denied an employer’s motion to dismiss or stay a former employee’s lawsuit alleging labor code violations on the basis of forum non conveniens where modifications to the employment agreement triggered the employee’s right under Lab. Code, § 925, to void the forum-selection clause in the employment agreement because the modifications occurred on or after January 1, 2017. The California litigation lawyer made a motion to protect the party’s interest.
