Why Arbitration?

When a business and its labor group finds themselves in the midst of a conflict, the logical answer is to find the quickest and least cost solution that maintains the on-going and mutually beneficial relationship between the parties. Pursuing costly and time-consuming litigation is seldom the answer to that process. Court action is a tempestuous and procedurally demanding process of endless appearances, filings, time-consuming discovery and even worse, time away from running the business for the company participants and from gain-full employment for the labor members.

Arbitration is highly compatible with today's fast-paced trends of labor and employment dispute resolution and is practiced world-wide by companies big and small. With its quick and economical qualities, arbitration is the smart choice to solving a range of employment and labor issues arising from their long-standing relationship that may be dividing both employees and companies.
