CIHLER: Pre-Dispute Mandatory Arbitration: A Model for Settling Disputes in a Positive Manner or a Forced Denial of Employee Rights?
March 9, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
Pre-dispute arbitration is one of the most controversial issues in employment relations, with congressional hearings now discussing possibly banning it. In this webinar, two Cornell scholars who have published extensively on this subject, ILR School Dean and Scheinman Professor Alex Colvin and Hotel School Ceriale Professor and CIHLER Director David Sherwyn, debate and discuss the topic, addressing their research on arbitration; whether society should allow arbitration; and what form of it, if adopted, works best. Harry Katz, Sheinkman Professor and Scheinman Institute Director, will moderate the discussion. Consideration will be given to what sort of alternative dispute resolution system could serve the interests of all sides and thereby warrant government promotion.
