Consumer Reports letter to House members in support of H.R. 1423, the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act)

Summary: The FAIR Act would prohibit the growing practice of corporations forcing consumers, as well as workers and small businesses, to give up their right to go to court, as a pre-condition for obtaining a product or service, or a job. Forced arbitration is being hidden in the fine print of standard-form purchase agreements and employment contracts.
