“Ending Arbitration Might Help Trial Lawyers, But Won’t Help Employees”

In an op-ed for The Hill, the director of the Independent Women’s Law Center said the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal Act “may help trial lawyers…but it won’t help employees get justice.”

Jennifer C. Braceras said trial lawyers are pushing this bill because “one runaway jury can deliver a sky-high windfall.” Arbitration, she says, “is typically cheaper, faster, and more efficient than litigation in court.” She pointed to a recent study from NDP Analytics that found that employees whose cases against their employer were arbitrated were three times more likely to win there than in litigation, and also won more money.

The bill passed the U.S. House last week and is now before the U.S. Senate.
