Arbitration in franchise cases is completely unsuitable when the issues involve either termination or systemic changes.

Arbitrators need not give reasons, the confidentiality provisions prevent the purpose of FTC's Franchise Rule on material disclosure.

I would like to see these mandatory provisions in a franchise contract removed, and am hopeful that the current bill will do so.
