Interactive Timeline Series Traces How The U.S. Supreme Court Forced Arbitration On America’s Workers

Over 60 million of America’s non-union private-sector workers are bound by forced arbitration clauses that bury claims of employer wrongdoing behind closed doors. Many of those clauses also silo workers in individual arbitration, making it especially hard for low-wage workers to vindicate their rights when they have been harmed on the job. Our interactive timeline series, Justice Denied: How The U.S. Supreme Court Forced America’s Workers Into Arbitration, explores the history of U.S. Supreme Court jurisprudence surrounding the Federal Arbitration Act, providing a unique and essential contribution to the public’s understanding of the how forced arbitration came to dominate and deny employees’ access to justice.
