New Jersey Employment Lawyers Practice Arbitration and Mediation

Alternative dispute resolution yields cost-effective solutions

Litigating a case in state or federal court is costly and time-consuming. Often it is advantageous to both parties to participate in alternate dispute resolution (ADR), either arbitration or mediation. In fact, an employee’s contract may stipulate that a contractual matter must go to arbitration or mediation for resolution. Deutsch Atkins, P.C. represents employees in ADR proceedings for a variety of issues.

Understanding how employment mediation works in New Jersey

A designated mediator serves as a go-between for multiple parties throughout the mediation process. Though technically neutral, the mediator often has ideas and opinions about the best way to settle a conflict and tries to get the parties to consider a number of possible options. The mediator orchestrates a give-and-take with each side to reach agreement and avoid costly, time-consuming litigation. Employment mediation is a route many New Jersey businesses and professionals choose, because it offers a more hands-on approach in an environment where they enjoy greater control than they would in a courtroom.

When you enter mediation, your employment attorney preps you for each session, and represents you in sessions for as long as the mediation lasts.

How does arbitration in New Jersey differ from mediation?

Arbitration is much more like a trial, with the arbitrator acting as judge and jury. With your assistance, your employment law attorney prepares and presents your case, and the arbitrator delivers a ruling. Some arbitration is binding, in which case the result is final, but other cases are nonbinding, giving you the option to pursue a trial if you’re not satisfied with the outcome.

Deutsch Atkins, P.C. represents employees of numerous industries in American Arbitration Association proceedings. We also assist financial industry executives, brokers and other licensed individuals in mediation and arbitration hearings for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), formerly the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD).
