Several Consumer Organizations Write in Support of the FAIR Act

Several public interest organizations strongly support the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act. The legislation would ensure that workers, consumers, servicemembers, nursing home residents, ordinary investors, and small businesses harmed by bad actors will be able to bring valid claims in court, and will not be forced into private, secretive, corporate-controlled arbitration systems that nonnegotiable contracts overwhelmingly require. The FAIR Act covers cases involving consumer, civil rights, employment, or antitrust violations, and will ensure that harmed individuals in these cases can enforce related federal and state protections.
