Thorough preparation is essential to the successful presentation of an arbitration case. Preparation should be methodical, considering all dimensions of your case and the other party’s case. Adequate groundwork will help you understand the case clearly and will facilitate an effective presentation at the arbitration hearing. Through lecture, facilitated discussions, and interactive exercises, the faculty will provide participants with practical skills, insights, tips, strategies, and information on how to prepare constructively for your next arbitration. Attendees will broaden their understanding of case preparation as well as deepen their knowledge of the basic guidelines that are useful in labor arbitration.

The course objectives include:

• Review of Guidelines for Case Preparation
• Opening and Closing Statements
• Causes of Discipline
• Burden of Proof
• Basic Principles of Contract Interpretation
• Rules on Past Practice
• Evidence


Who Should Attend?

Labor and management representatives including union representatives, human resources professionals, attorneys, shop stewards, business agents, and individuals who assist advocates in the preparation and presentation of evidence for labor arbitration cases will find the information in this program invaluable.
