Forced arbitration clauses allow companies to force workers and consumers into secretive proceedings where there is no neutral judge or jury. Over the last few years, companies have been exposed for using these clauses to protect themselves from accountability for wrongdoing –everything from discrimination in the workplace to covering up sexual harassment.
That’s blatantly unfair! Fortunately there’s a bill in Congress right now that would stop companies from forcing sexual assault and sexual harassment disputes into arbitration.
Please send your Representative a message and urge them to support the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act, a BIPARTISAN bill that has a real shot of passing and becoming law soon.
However, this particular call to action doesn't target leaders representing your district. Don't despair, there are many other ways you can support us!
