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. Tell Congress to stop using forced arbitration to strip away our rights and deny our day in court!

Arbitration clauses are increasingly found in contracts for employment, credit cards, cell phones, for-profit schools, car purchases, home building, and nursing homes, depriving millions of consumers of 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.
