IDN 62 - The Arbitration Fairness Act, Analyzed

In this week's International Dispute Negotiation podcast, the American Arbitration Association's general counsel, Eric Tuchmann, returns for his second visit, analyzing the Congressional push to ban mandatory consumer, employment and franchise arbitration. Initiatives to change arbitration practice were reintroduced last week. IDN host Mike McIlwrath, of GE Oil & Gas in Florence, Italy, sat down with Eric before the bills were reintroduced, and brings listeners up to date. Eric presciently predicts that certain language in the Arbitration Fairness Act won't survive - and indeed, one provision he found troubling in the earlier version of the bill was stricken in the new version that debuted last week. Find out what that change was, and what else may be altered before the Arbitration Fairness Act of 2009 comes up for votes.
