Congressional Subcommittee Addresses Forced Arbitration

On February 11, 2021, the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law held a hearing entitled “Justice Restored: Ending Forced Arbitration and Protecting Fundamental Rights.” The hearing addressed, among other things, the “FAIR Act,” which was recently introduced in the House and will make it far more difficult to companies to use “private arbitration agreements” to force workers and consumers to give up their right to pursue sue in court. You can watch the hearing by clicking HERE.
