These arbitration clauses, which are often part of non-negotiable form contracts, require you to use private arbitration rather than courts to resolve legal disputes. Today, almost every type of contract includes an arbitration clause. If you have a credit card, use a cellphone, get cable or Internet service, or shop online, then you have likely agreed to private arbitration. These clauses also exist in many gig economy job contracts.
These companies and corporations use these clauses as a way to circumvent the courts and bar people from joining together in class-action lawsuits.

What is Mass Arbitration?
While arbitration clauses bar you from joining together with other employees or consumers to mount class-action lawsuits, mass arbitration can be a way to still gain an advantage on a group-wide scale and give you negotiating power.
Mass arbitration involves groups of workers or consumers initiating arbitration claims against the same company simultaneously. This can trigger the defendants' obligation to pay fees and costs for each individual claim.
Having legal representation may put you in a better position to win your arbitration claim. In fact, hiring an attorney is the factor most strongly associated with a plaintiff’s arbitration success.
Although many companies and employers are trying to restrict your right to bring your claim to court, Morgan & Morgan is here to help. We fight For The People, not the powerful.

My Contract Includes an Arbitration Clause: Can I Still File a Lawsuit?
In situations where there is a legal requirement to go to arbitration, the shape of the legal action may change. Nevertheless, you have the right to hire a legal team to fight for you and guide you through the process.
How Does Arbitration Undermine My Rights?
Many companies describe arbitration as an inexpensive and efficient solution for disputing parties. The reality is, these are corporate attempts to strip you of your Constitutional right to a trial by jury.
Arbitration is the privatization of the justice system. While private arbitration does not appear to significantly differ from a public court proceeding, the corporation generally chooses the arbitration association which will adjudicate the proceeding. In an arbitration proceeding, the private arbitrator serves as judge and jury.
