“It’s starting to look like Republicans and Democrats in Congress may actually reach a deal on something.
Not on health care, or immigration, or any other topic dominating the headlines, but a deal on a wonky legal loophole that bars millions of Americans from getting their day in court.
Senate Republicans held a committee hearing Tuesday on corporate America’s alarming use of mandatory arbitration clauses, a common business practice that requires workers and customers to waive their right to sue the company. Millions of Americans have unknowingly signed or accepted these contract clauses, in which they agree to take legal disputes to private arbitration — a secretive legal forum with no judge, no jury, and practically zero government oversight.
In private arbitration, workers are less likely to win their cases, and when they do win, they tend to get much less money than they would in court.”
