What Is Arbitration?

Arbitration is the adjudication of a claim which is less formal than litigation in court. It is a streamlined legal procedure. The arbitrator is usually an individual or a tribunal selected by the parties involved or by a neutral party. Arbitration is, most often used for the resolution of disputes between businesses or between a business and its customers.

Unlike mediation, an impartial, knowledgeable third party is empowered to make decisions during the proceedings. During a mediation, the mediator has no authority to issue binding decisions. Arbitration is also sometimes used to scare debtors into paying up. And it is also commonly used in labor relations to resolve grievances.

The Employee Free Choice Act allows the use of arbitration to create a contract when the parties cannot do so themselves. Arbitration is often encouraged over traditional court litigation because arbitration generally results in faster resolution and usually is less expensive than litigation. In addition, arbitration results are private and can only be made public with the consent of the parties involved. Arbitration is well-established and widely used. It is one of several types of alternative dispute resolution.
