12 OK Stat § 12-1880 (2015) What's This?

A. In applying and construing the Uniform Arbitration Act, consideration must be given to the need to promote uniformity of the law with respect to its subject matter among states that enact it.

B. In applying and construing the Uniform Arbitration Act, to the extent permitted by federal law, recognition shall be given to the following considerations as applicable:

1. Agreements to arbitrate are often included in standard forms prepared by one party and in a context where there is little or no ability to negotiate or change the terms of the agreement to arbitrate; and

2. In such cases, clauses providing for the location for arbitration, for the expenses of arbitration, denying the ability to consolidate arbitrations or to have arbitration for a class of persons involving substantially similar issues, and for other matters that may represent a serious disadvantage to the party or parties that did not prepare the form shall be closely reviewed for unconscionability based on unreasonable one-sidedness and understandable or unnoticeable language or lack of meaningful choice and for balance and fairness in accordance with reasonable standards of fair dealing.
