This informative session addresses drafting arbitration and mediation clauses
for employment and business contracts. It is the perfect opportunity to learn
about tailoring clauses to the specific disputes that may arise in situations
anticipated in specific contracts. Sample arbitration and mediation clauses and
articles on the subject will be distributed.
The panelists will discuss the reasons why there is
no ideal arbitration clause for all contracts. Instead a contract can be
tailored to each unique situation. Employment agreements and business agreements
should have a mediation clause that identifies the venue, time, governing law,
discovery, which tribunal will administrate it, as well as what you will do if
you cannot agree on a mediator. Otherwise, ADR can be more expensive and
prolonged then litigation in the courts.
