In the past, I’ve written articles about how forced arbitration requires disputes to be settled by privately appointed arbitrators rather than the court system.
Arbitration robs consumers of their day in court. In addition, few consumers resolve disputes through arbitration, and when they do, businesses almost always win.
Arbitration clauses are buried in the fine print of contracts for credit cards, bank accounts, student loans, cell phones, medical services, and many other consumer products and services. The clauses are even being used in employment contracts.
