Nursing Home Arbitration Act – To Ban Forced Arbitration Clauses
Congress will pass the Arbitration Fairness Act and Nursing Home Arbitration Act that would allow injured workers and consumers to file lawsuits in state and federal courts instead of going through arbitration. Quite often, contracts that residents must sign before admission to a facility prevent them or their families from suing the nursing homes for poor or substandard care. This legislation would allow workers and consumers the option t to file suit or go through arbitration.
