Synopsis By: Lurie - Proceeding Author: Brian S. Klass, Douglas M. Mahony, Hoyt N. Wheeler

A comparison of the industrial justice systems developed by non-unionized companies, comparing them also to labor arbitration, to United States courts, and to courts in other countries, examining the favorableness of the systems to the respective parties and examining several other dimensions. The studies show the statistical “win” percentages in various forums; the costs; and the amounts awarded. The authors found that the type of decision maker was statistically significant in accounting for differences in outcome.
