The Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act would end forced pre-dispute arbitration in contracts between consumers and corporations, including nursing homes and assisted living communities.

Forced pre-dispute arbitration is a legal process in which a consumer is essentially forced to agree, before a dispute arises, to have the issue settled by one or more arbitrators who decide the outcome. Forced pre-dispute arbitration takes advantage of long-term care consumers at their most vulnerable, stacks the deck against them, restricts consumer choice, hides poor care, and lessens provider accountability.
It's important to stop this practice which deprives residents and other long-term care consumers of their right to seek justice in court before an impartial judge or jury when they are harmed.
