Workers engaged in the transportation of goods across state or international borders are exempt from the Federal Arbitration Act's (FAA) coverage following a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court issued on April 12, 2024.

In deciding Bissonnette v. LePage Bakeries Park St., LLC, the Court ruled that workers need not be employed or engaged by a transportation company to be exempt from FAA coverage.
