During the medarb, each side will communicate the dispute and attempt to reach a voluntary agreement. The results of the mediation are not binding but rather presented in good faith and up to the disputing parties to follow. In the event that the dispute is not resolved in a 48-hour period after the beginning of medarb or if the prior mediated agreement was disregarded, the arbitration process will begin. The role of the arbitrator will be assigned to another neutral legal party agreed on by Riordan and the customer. The decision handed down by the arbitrator is final and binding to those in dispute.
Alternative Dispute Resolution University of Phoenix LAW/531 Courteney Harris March 22, 2011 Alternative Dispute Resolution The learning team environment could be often disturbed with disagreements and disputes between members. To reduce the conflicts, learning teams should integrate methods of alternative dispute resolution that could resolve, prevent, and address all types of team confrontations in a responsive, timely and fair manner. An alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is used to resolve business and other disputes among persons. “The most common form of ADR includes arbitration, negotiation, mediation, conciliation, mini-trial, fact-finding, and judicial referee” (Cheeseman, 2010 p.43). The purpose of this paper is to prepare an ADR clause that may be used by a learning team to resolve disputes.

As the client may not have ever spoken about what they are about to speak about to the counsellor before. So they are putting their whole trust, feelings and courage in telling the counsellor knowing that it will never be discussed out of the counselling session. Confidentiality should be discussed
This will save time in the long run, which should encourage most employees despite their initial frustration with the management system change. A series of training and preparation with individualized tutorials might mitigate some anticipated resistance. Inadequate communication may also cause resistance. Management will make the major decisions with regard to the scheduled change; it is their obligation to clarify these decisions to subordinates within the company. Management is also expected to properly handle the inevitable questions and grievances; it is important to avoid misinterpretation regarding the procedural
Second alternative is Peer Review. Peer Review can be described as “a problem-solving process where an employee takes a dispute to a group or panel of fellow employees and managers for a decision. The decision is not binding on the employee, and s/he would be able to seek relief in traditional forums for dispute resolution if dissatisfied with the decision. The principal objective of peer review is to resolve disputes early before they become formal complaints” (U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, 2014).
In this method each person, Carl, Brian and Jenny, would have the opportunity to “plead their case” before a non-biased individual or panel and who would hear FastServe’s justification for the decision of whom to layoff and a final judgment would be made. Again this form of conflict resolution was seen as inappropriate due to the fact the organization had already made the decision to downsize and therefore, would not be open for a change of plan. The most logical solution therefore, was to use mediation to assist in reducing the risks associated with the potential conflicts. The process of mediation has all concerned parties sitting together and discussing the best options for the parties
Involving team members in discussion on their perspectives and expectations will help build agreement with the group and provides an accurate mental model. | Incorrect mental models can derail the common plan and purpose. If each team member uses a different mental model, this will enable the team from finishing the mission. Disagreement may take place should each team member have a different idea on what to do and how to achieve it.
Unfortunately, there are professional workplaces that discourage this type of thinking. A student may interview for a job that promotes critical thinkers, only to find out once they are hired, this is not the truth. Supervisors and managers see critical thinkers as a threat to their position and power. Critical thinkers need to learn thoughtfulness and sensitivity when offering their
The amendments require disclosure by the parenting coordinator, whether confidential or otherwise, of the substance of any communication by a participant, such as a lawyer for one of the parties, to all the other parties and lawyers, so that effectively there can be no caucus style communication, proven to be a very effective tool in mediation of parenting issues. This means there really is no true confidentiality. 3. The amendments will effectively remove the court’s authority to appoint confidential parenting coordinators, because the moment the order is signed, either party can file a motion and the court must remove the appointed PC without
