Google employees walked out for the right to sue their bosses.

Now they’re taking the fight to Congress.

They’re urging lawmakers to pass the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal Act.

A few Google employees joined a group of workers in Washington, DC, on Thursday, urging members of Congress to outlaw mandatory arbitration, a common business practice in employment and consumer contracts that requires workers and customers to take legal disputes to private arbitration — a quasi-legal forum with no judge, no jury, and nearly zero government oversight.
Tanuja Gupta, an engineering program manager who works for Google in New York, is part of a group of tech workers calling for a federal ban on forced arbitration. Last week, Google said the company would stop mandating the practice for employees, largely a response to persistent worker pressure.
