Abstract

Using mandatory arbitration to resolve employment disputes has been a major source of controversy since the practice emerged about twenty-five years ago. On one side of the debate have been proponents of the practice, who contend that mandatory pre-dispute arbitration provides a faster and cheaper means of resolving employment disputes than relying on conventional litigation.
