Q & A

about workplace mediated arbitrations

A mediated-arbitration process is when the parties involved agree that the mediator can also be the adjudicator. If the mediation ends with outstanding issues, then the mediator can act as an arbitrator and hold a hearing and create a binding decision for the parties.

To resolve disputes in the non-union context, a private arbitrator can help avoid unnecessary and lengthy court proceedings. An employment contract can mandate arbitration for situations where the parties cannot agree on an outcome, allowing an arbitrator to rule on the matter.

It is up to the parties to consent to have the mediator and arbitrator be the same person. It is allowed, but they can also be different people. Whether they are the same or different people, it is still a less expensive and more timely process than traditional litigation in court.
