Skilled Representation In Labor Arbitration
Labor arbitration may not be your preferred forum for dispute resolution. However, many collective bargaining agreements require it. When handled correctly, labor disputes between labor unions and management can preserve the employment relationship while resolving disputes. If you are involved in a labor dispute, it is vital to have a good third-party arbitrator and strong legal representation.
Skilled Michigan Labor Arbitration Attorneys
While collective bargaining agreements may dictate the arbitration forum, parties to a labor arbitration can often choose the arbitrator for their case. The labor arbitration lawyers at NachtLaw are careful when selecting arbitrators for their clients, ensuring that the arbitrator does not have competing interests or unfair bias. Labor arbitration can be an effective alternative to trial because it can reduce the cost and public impact of an employment dispute while keeping decision-making power with a third party neutral. When the arbitrator has a hidden agenda, this no longer stands true. Therefore, careful selection of your arbitrator is essential, and retaining counsel at the earliest point is advised.
