The most important thing we can do to protect employees against illegal treatment is end forced arbitration. A bill in the House is building momentum and Reps. Barbara Lee and Eric Swalwell have already signed on as cosponsors to H.R. 1374; Rep. Mark DeSaulnier needs to join them.

Rep. Mark Desaulnier (email); (510) 620-1000 DC: (202) 225-2095

Hi. My name is ___, my zip code is ___, and I’m with Indivisible East Bay.

I am asking Rep. DeSaulnier to cosponsor and speak out on behalf of H.R. 1374, The Arbitration Fairness Act of 2017. For too long, corporations have used unfair arbitration agreements to revoke employees’ constitutional right to their day in public court. Employees that have faced sexual harassment, retaliation, and discrimination have been denied the ability to seek justice and fair compensation for their hardships.

Background:  We were inspired by this post by CA-13 resident (and local badass) Susan Fowler.  There’s additional information on Arbitration Fairness from Sen. Al Franken, here.
