Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) versus the court system.
ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION (ADR) VERSUS THE COURT SYSTEM. AUSTIN RAY, R. BRYAN KENNEDY, SUSAN D. HERRING, AND MICHAEL ESSARY, COLLEGE OF BUSINESS, ATHENS STATE UNIVERSITY, ATHENS, AL 35611
Going through the legal system to resolve labor disputes can be both expensive and time consuming. Most Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs) negotiated between organizations and unions include a formal grievance procedure to settle work place issues that arise during the life of the CBA. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods are usually included in such procedures. In many CBAs, mediation by an impartial mediator is the first attempt toward settlement of a dispute. If mutual agreement is not achieved during mediation and the parties cannot resolve the grievance between themselves, the dispute will proceed to arbitration. This session will explore some of the differences, advantages, and disadvantages of utilizing arbitration versus the legal system in settling labor disputes.
