Following is a comparative analysis of arbitration and court litigation as they relate to resolving employee claims. Titled “A Comparative Study of Arbitration and Court Litigation in Employment Disputes,” this study was conducted under the guidance of distinguished scholars Harry C, Katz (Cornell University), Thomas A. Kochan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Lewis L. Maltby (National Workrights Institute), David Sherwyn (Cornell University), and Academy member Theodore J. St. Antoine (University of Michigan Law School).
The study explores the efficacy of arbitration versus traditional court proceedings in safeguarding the rights of employees, offering a comprehensive examination of outcomes across both forums. Partially funded by a grant from the Academy’s Research and Education Fund (REF), this research aims to provide insights that inform policy discussions and enhance understanding within the field of dispute resolution.
