Practice/Industry Group Overview

The explosion of employee lawsuits in the past decade has led many employers to consider in-house programs for handling complaints and resolving disputes without litigation. 

Jackson Lewis counsels employers in all aspects of alternative dispute resolution, from creating, designing and evaluating pre-dispute issue resolution procedures to training management, coordinating implementation, and assessing effectiveness. 

We advise employers on a variety of programs, including:

  • Internal Mediation
  • Ombudsman
  • Peer Review 
  • Voluntary and/or mandatory arbitration

When challenged by an employee or government agency, our attorneys have defended arbitration agreements, and have represented employers at all levels of state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court.
