You've likely heard the terms alternative dispute resolution (ADR), mediation and arbitration, but may not know exactly what they mean and how you can use them to your benefit in a dispute. The effective use of arbitration agreements as well as mediation or arbitration processes can be key tools to minimize the costs of litigation and protect your bottom line. By understanding your options and thinking strategically before a conflict or lawsuit ever arises, you can avoid employee disputes before they occur, or limit the scope of existing disputes with cost-effective resolution options.

In this informative webinar, employment law attorney Kathleen Fellows will provide an overview of alternative dispute resolution options, including the pros and cons of each and best practices for success. Topics will include the following:

  • What is alternative dispute resolution and why should I participate?
  • What if I don't want to settle with the employee?
  • Is mediation worth the cost?
  • Strategic tips to help you succeed in the mediation process
  • Why is an arbitration agreement necessary – and why is it critical?
  • What should be in my arbitration agreement?
  • Best practices for rolling out arbitration agreements to employees
  • Can I require applicants and employees to sign my arbitration agreement?
  • What if my employee refuses to sign it?
  • Is arbitration worth the cost?
  • and more!
