WHAT IS ARBITRATION?
WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Arbitration is a
form of alternative dispute resolution. A legal alternative to litigation whereby the parties
to a dispute agree to submit their respective
positions (through agreement or hearing) to a neutral
third party (the arbitrator(s) or arbiter(s)) for
Arbitration may also serve a distinct purpose: as an
alternative to strikes and lockouts as a means of
resolving labor disputes. Labor arbitration comes in
two varieties: interest arbitration, which provides a
method for resolving disputes about the terms to be
included in a new contract when the parties are unable
to agree, and grievance arbitration, which provides a
method for resolving disputes over the interpretation
and application of a collective bargaining agreement.
Mediation is a settlement process where a third-party
mediator assists the parties in negotiating a
voluntary settlement of a dispute. Mediation is far
more cost effective than traditional litigation which
usually lasts one day versus years for litigation.
Central to mediation are
the concepts of:
- Informed consent
of all parties throughout the process
Neutral, Balanced and Safe
and Satisfying to all parties
