Alternative Dispute Resolution in the Workplace: Concepts and Techniques for Human Resource Executives and Their Counsel

Synopsis

With the explosion of workplace litigation and the skyrocketing costs associated with it, employers in both the private and public sectors are seeking new ways to swiftly and inexpensively resolve disputes with their employees. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures offer ways to do this and, according to recent reports, more than 100 major corporations have made use of them. Not only are the costs of trying a workplace dispute before a jury avoided, but also due process requirements have been observed. McDermott and Berkeley introduce executives to ADR, how it's done, and its benefits. This book will be interesting and important reading for executives and for legal counsel that may be unfamiliar with ADR.
