a message from HADD

Please support the Arbitration Fairness Act of 2009. I will be attending the press conference in Washington, DC on April 29, announcing the introduction of this legislation. Nearly every home buyer today will have a forced arbitration clause in their purchase contract, and/or, their third party warranty. HADD is a member of the Give Me Back My Rights coalition.

Recently, I've been learning about a dangerous way for employers and companies to avoid being accountable to employees and consumers. I'm talking about forced arbitration - a practice which traps employees and consumers into waiving their rights to sue, participate in a class-action lawsuit, or to appeal an unfair resolution to a conflict.

Forced arbitration clauses are buried into the fine print of contracts and terms of agreements for employment, insurance, home-building, car loans and leases, credit cards, nursing facilities, and more - clauses that people like you and I are agreeing to every day!

Thankfully, there is already legislation moving through Congress to put an end to forced arbitration. The Arbitration Fairness Act would disallow employers and companies from using forced arbitration in civil rights, employment, consumer, or franchise disputes.

Join me in asking members of Congress to support the Arbitration Fairness Act, which will end the practice of forcing employees and consumers to sign away their rights to legal protections and access to courts.
