Jonathan Harris on How to Get out of TRAPs with Consumer Law as Work Law

HarrisWe've talked about Training Repayment Agreement Provisions or (TRAPs) recently here.  Over on the Law and Political Economy Project Blog, Jonathan Harris has a new post on the subject.  He tells the story of Breanne Scally and her class-action lawsuit against PetSmart, who worked briefly as a pet groomer and then was charged $5500 under a TRAP when she quit before the TRAP's two year term had expired.

Jonathan also has a forthcoming article, Consumer Law as Work Law (forthcoming Calif. L. Rev. 2024), about how consumer law encompasses protecting employees from TRAPs and other unfair and deceptive acts and practices.
