WEBINAR » To Arbitrate or Not? That is the Question

With the incidents of employment-related lawsuits on the rise and due to the uncertainties of facing a jury trial, many employers are considering or have enacted mandatory arbitration programs which essentially require both the employer and the employee to submit any disputes to binding arbitration. The question is whether or not the enactment of a binding arbitration is truly in the best interests of an employer.
