U.S. lawmakers propose ban on arbitration of sexual misconduct claims

Derechos Civiles Discriminación Género2017 | Diciembre 7
Members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives unveiled the bill on Wednesday, saying mandatory arbitration agreements had forced women to privately arbitrate misconduct claims, effectively silencing victims and enabling serial harassers.

 The bill would make those agreements unenforceable in sexual harassment and discrimination cases brought under federal law. Lawmakers said an estimated 60 million U.S. workers have mandatory arbitration agreements.

Un pensamiento en “U.S. lawmakers propose ban on arbitration of sexual misconduct claims

  1. Arbitration per se is not the problem; underlying, obscure intentions, are. The larger issue is why is arbitration proposed? To resolve conflict, or to hush and even further harass potential claimants?

    Over the decades, the US Supreme court has debated how best to allow the intentions of the 1925 Legislators to remain valid, alive. That said, arbitration remains challenged almost at every turn throughout the US Judiciary structure, probably because a modicum of sophistication is accorded commerce but, are individuals equally sophisticated? Have individuals simply grown stubborn in the belief that they have a right to be overprotected from abuse whether real or imaginary? Is it enough to find “caveat emptor” as we can find “venditor emptor”? What level of sophistication can we assign to the “caveats” across the board?

    Mediation? Perhaps, but not arbitration, not for certain issues requiring societal involvement at large, which is to say, a prosecutor.
