The FAA’s exemption for contracts of employment for workers in interstate and foreign commerce applied to plaintiff who worked in a warehouse in California which served as a transhipping depot for Adidas products which arrived at the warehouse from foreign countries, were stored temporarily at the warehouse before being loaded on trucks for distribution to local retailers.  Though plaintiff transported the goods only a short distance from loading dock to shelves and vice versa, he played an essential role in the entire chain of shipment of the Adidas products from foreign manufacturer to local retailer.  Hence, the FAA did not apply to plaintiff’s employment contract or the arbitration clause which it contained.
