OVERVIEW
The menu of available forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is limited only by the imaginations of attorneys and their clients. The label “ADR” is applied to such typical dispute-resolution techniques as negotiation, mediation and, of course, arbitration. Less typical ADR methods include mini-trials, med/arb combinations, interest arbitration, non-binding advisory arbs, and more. No one size fits all.
However, the US Supreme Court’s recent decisions have made binding arbitration agreement particularly appealing to employers who want to avoid class-action suits under the FairLabor Standards Act and #MeToo actions.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
Knowing the pros and cons of arbitration agreements and how to draft an arbitration agreement in employment and collective bargaining agreements that will withstand challenge are crucial skills to add to your HR tool bag, whether yours is a small or a multi-national business or a non-profit institution.
AREAS COVERED
  • How to draft an arbitration agreement into your employment and sales contracts that courts will enforce under Epic Systems
  • Employment arbitration rules and mediation procedures
  • The pros and cons of negotiation, mediation and arbitration: when to use them, alone or in combination
  • Typical ADR rules and procedures
  • How to pick the right neutral: arbitrator, mediator, negotiator
  • When and what to expect from court-mandated ADR
  • ADR and government agencies such as the EEOC
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
On May 21, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its long-anticipated decision in Epic Systems Corporation v. Lewis (138 S.Ct. 1612) in which the majority confirmed that a company can require a disgruntled employee to abide by the arbitration agreements in employment contracts. A big deal? You bet, when the alternative is a class-action suit brought on behalf of all similarly situated employees, as with a wage & hour claim.
Throw in the possibility of a six-figure attorney’s fee, if the plaintiffs prevail and that little ol’ arbitration clause can save a company millions!
