Alternative Dispute Resolution

Introduction

Summer 2010.  

This guide is no longer being updated.  

See the new version of this guide:

Alternative Dispute Resolution  

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a term that encompasses arbitration, mediation and other dispute resolution techniques. Often used as an alternative to litigation, ADR generally refers to a dispute resolution processes in which the parties meet with a professional third party who helps them resolve their dispute.

It was during the 1970s that the acronym ADR was coined. First emerging in the legal profession, driven by the concern over the perceived litigation explosion, the concept grew to include other means of conflict dispute resolution, including ombudsmen and mediation.

The focus of this guide is the use of alternative dispute resolution in U.S. employment relations. Particular attention is paid to the use of arbitration and mediation in unionized settings, both public and private.

Keywords: alternative dispute resolution, ADR, conflict resolution, conflict management, mediation, arbitration

Starting Points

LLRX: Researching Labor Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution in Employment

http://www.llrx.com/features/adr.htm

By Suzanne Thorpe, Professor of Legal Research Instruction and Laura J. Cooper, Stewart and Mario Thomas McClendon Professor in Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution, University of Minnesota Law School.   This guide lists sources that discuss arbitration and other means of employment dispute resolution in unionized and nonunionized settings. After identifying comprehensive bibliographies on these topics, the guide presents texts that dispute resolution practitioners consider to be essential reference tools. Sources that contain arbitration awards, sources that provide information about alternative dispute resolution professionals, and texts of procedure and ethics rules follow next. The last portion of the guide covers other texts, periodicals, and Web sites that offer additional commentary on arbitration, mediation, and other types of employment dispute resolution.
NLRB - National Labor Relations Board

http://www.nlrb.gov

The National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1935 to administer the National Labor Relations Act, the primary law governing relations between unions and employers in the private sector. The statute guarantees the right of employees to organize and to bargain collectively with their employers or to refrain from all such activity. Generally applying to all employers involved in interstate commerce--other than airlines, railroads, agriculture, and government--the Act implements the national labor policy of assuring free choice and encouraging collective bargaining as a means of maintaining industrial peace. Through the years, Congress has amended the Act and the Board and courts have developed a body of law drawn from the statute.

National Mediation Board

http://www.nmb.gov/

The National Mediation Board (NMB), established by the 1934 amendments to the Railway Labor Act of 1926, is an independent agency that performs a central role in facilitating harmonious labor-management relations within two of the nation's key transportation modes--the railroads and airlines. Pursuant to the Railway Labor Act, NMB programs provide an integrated dispute resolution process to effectively meet the statutory objective of minimizing work stoppages in the airline and railroad industries. 
NLRB - National Labor Relations Board

http://www.nlrb.gov

The National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1935 to administer the National Labor Relations Act, the primary law governing relations between unions and employers in the private sector. The statute guarantees the right of employees to organize and to bargain collectively with their employers or to refrain from all such activity. Generally applying to all employers involved in interstate commerce--other than airlines, railroads, agriculture, and government--the Act implements the national labor policy of assuring free choice and encouraging collective bargaining as a means of maintaining industrial peace. Through the years, Congress has amended the Act and the Board and courts have developed a body of law drawn from the statute.
