The Fairness in Nursing Home Arbitration Act, proposed by Reps. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), aims to ban long term care facilities from requiring nursing home residents to sign and commit to pre-dispute binding arbitration agreements.

What is a pre-dispute binding arbitration agreement?
A pre-dispute binding arbitration agreement is a contract that mandates that anyone who enters into a contract would later be forced to give up their Constitutional right to a jury trial should any dispute arise.

The Fairness in Nursing Home Arbitration Act is crucial legislation to bring back the Constitutionally given right to nursing home residents and their loved ones to a fair and impartial jury trial.  Revisit our page to receive updates as the bill moves through legislation.
