Court enforces six-month "private" statute of limitations in contract

Kimberly Hardy sought to pursue a lawsuit against her employer, St. John Health, after her job was terminated.  The Court of Appeals rejected her lawsuit because she "agreed" to a six-month statute of limitations on claims against her employer in her employment application.  This is the Dickensian world we live in:  Hardy was "free" to bargain away her civil rights in return for being "considered" for a job.  A six-month limitation period is neither "procedurally nor substantively unconscionable," according to insurance lawyer-judges, and therefore does not violate public policy.
