Fair Arbitration Now

Most Americans don't know that they are bound by pre-dispute Binding Mandatory Arbitration (BMA). Buried in the fine print of non-negotiable consumer contracts, billing inserts, employee handbooks, health insurance plans, or dealership or franchise agreements, arbitration clauses require consumers, employees, patients and the elderly to waive their right to a fair trial in public court.

The only proper solution to the arbitration problem facing consumers, non-union employees and patients is to give them a meaningful choice.
