Alternative Dispute Resolution

Contrary to general notion, labor disputes may not necessarily proceed to the courts’ jurisdiction. So why move on to a litigation process where it is costly and decisions are sometimes uncertain? Modern HRM provides legal services with this dilemma in mind. Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR resolves labor conflicts by ways other than common court litigations. Commonly in the form of either mediation or arbitration, ADR often comes to compromise between two conflicting parties thus reducing time and cost in resolving labor issues.

Online systems offer legal services in Alternative Dispute Resolution. These sites feature a number of distinguished lawyers who have been in arbitration cases. You can view these cases through their respective sites. Just to give you a glimpse in the arbitration process, it is similar to litigation except for the persons in charge. While there is the jury and the judge in common court proceedings, in arbitration only the panel of arbitrators who decide on an issue is present. These arbitrators are of course experts in the field of labor law.

Once the panel or the arbitrator has reached a decision, it is final and binds all parties involved. Since the public has generally accepted ADR, it has become a ‘Go To’ process in labor disputes. Alternative Dispute Resolution has three major advantages, namely: (1) speedy disposition of conflicts, (2) less cost, (3) confidentiality of the process itself. These sites also offer other links to specific labor legislations and jurisprudence for research processes. Labor disputes are not easy to handle, some of them may even end up in violence. Be in contact with the arbitrators in these sites and do away with costly and protracted litigations.
