In an article published by the Washington Post on September 22, 2016, Joseph C. Sullivan provides guidance on the possible changes in legislation with the approval of the Consumer Review Fairness Act. The Senate proposed bill could protect consumers who review companies online. If successful, the changes in legislation would make it illegal for companies to ban clients from posting negative reviews on sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor. Mr. Sullivan explains that, “The Consumer Review Fairness Act will essentially make it illegal for companies to prohibit their consumers from leaving honest, negative reviews or criticisms about their goods or services online.” For the full article, please visit the Washington Post website.
