This program currently has no scheduled dates.

Labor arbitration cases require experience and special attention by professional arbitrators. Because practitioners gain much of their knowledge through actual practice, the Scheinman Institute believes it helpful for a developing arbitrator to explore advanced issues once they have had the opportunity to observe and manage arbitration cases. This workshop will do just that, by discussing with participants:

  • Advanced Issues in Discipline and Discharge Cases
    -- Due process problems
    -- The Missing Witness
    -- Thorny Evidentiary Issues in Discipline Cases
  • Advanced Issues in Contract Interpretation Cases
    -- Understanding Past Practice
    -- The Decisional Matrix
  • Q&A for Difficult Problems You Have Encountered
