What is Arbitration?

Alternative dispute resolution or 'ADR' is a name for several dispute resolution processes and techniques, including negotiation, mediation and arbitration.  These methods are alternatives to litigation and can be less time consuming and more cost-effective than going to court.  Additionally, relationships can be preserved through processes fostering cooperation and compromise, rather than the traditional adversarial means of dispute resolution.

Arbitration is a process whereby the parties to a dispute agree to submit their respective positions to a neutral third party (the 'arbitrator') for resolution.  The arbitrator will hear both sides of the dispute and will make a legally binding ruling.  Arbitrators have greater leeway in such matters as: active participation in the proceedings, accepting evidence, questioning witnesses, and deciding appropriate remedies.  Arbitration can be voluntarily initiated by the parties.
