Vote Recommendation: For
"Fair Arbitration Act" (GA) fulfills an important role in comprehensively regulating arbitration agreements, which are agreements that mandate the resolving of legal disputes by an independent arbitrator, rather than a court of law. The proposal seeks to ensure that these agreements are only valid when they serve the public good, and accomplishes this effectively by prohibiting all such agreements with respect to matters of antitrust violations, civil rights, consumer goods, and employment. The proposal sees to it that arbitration agreements will only apply between two parties of relatively equal bargaining power, and will never unduly interfere with the ability of an individual to seek legal action over alleged wrongdoing. The proposal nicely complements prior resolutions passed by the General Assembly, by ensuring that individuals can enforce their rights in court.
For these reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends voting For the at-vote General Assembly proposal, "Fair Arbitration Act".
