CLE Webinar: Workplace Conflict Resolution Through Mediation and Arbitration

CLE Events | Webinar Date: June 21, 2023 at 12:00 p.m. ET

Join NAM neutral, Hon. Alan D. Scheinkman (Ret.) in a compelling discussion about Workplace Conflict Resolution Through Mediation and Arbitration. This 1-hour live-streamed CLE webinar will be held on Wednesday, June 21 at 12:00 p.m. by the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education (NACLE).

Conflict in the workplace is natural and can be constructive. Through communication of different points of view and perspectives, co-workers may gain a greater degree of insight into the issues at hand and increase the options that may be available to resolve difficult issues.

The use of mediation as a voluntary means of resolving employment disputes is rapidly gaining acceptance. If agreed to early on, it may save significant costs of litigation, yet allow the parties to each have a full opportunity to explain their side of the situation to a jointly selected, experienced neutral. However, in mediation, the parties are not required to accept a solution recommended by a mediator. If the remedy offered is not accepted, the parties may consider arbitration. There are advantages to agreeing to arbitrate the matter, including a binding decision made by the neutral after a hearing.

Judge Scheinkman will provide insight into the arbitration and mediation process, as well as offer best practices to maximize the benefits of these alternative dispute resolution methods.
