Buried in the fine print of many financial and other contracts is a forced arbitration clause that gives companies a “get-out-of-jail-free” card to evade accountability for violating the law and for problems with their products or services. 

Forced arbitration clauses are increasingly found in contracts for employment, credit cards, cell phones, car purchases, home building, and nursing homes, depriving millions of consumers’ their right to a day in court before an impartial judge or jury.

Arbitrators do not have to follow the law or facts and have an incentive to favor the company that can give them repeat business or not. New rules will restore your day in court for claims against nursing homesfraudulent for-profit schools, and hopefully soon, banks and other financial companies. Yet industry lobbyists are pressuring Congress to block the rules.

Tell the Senate to stop letting corporate wrongdoers use forced arbitration clauses that strip away our rights!
