Fundamentals of Labor Arbitration

There are currently no sessions offered.
This new program provides a thorough introduction to the world of labor arbitration. Program topics will cover the different types of arbitration and contrast them with other dispute resolution processes. A discussion of the legal setting of arbitration will include the role of the courts and the major state and federal agencies responsible for enforcing labor laws.

Participants will learn how to initiate a case in arbitration and discuss the qualifications and selection of labor arbitrators. The main focus of the program will be an examination of how arbitrators decide discipline and contract interpretation disputes. The effect of prior arbitration awards and prior settlements of grievances will also be examined.

The program will blend lectures and group exercises to create a stimulating learning experience. This one-day class is based on the book of the same title which was published by the American Arbitration Association and Cornell University's Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution.
