The Fairness Issue: Due Process Protocol

Federal and state laws, as well as the court decisions applying those statutes, have redefined responsible corporate practices and employee relations. Employers and employees face occasional workplace disputes involving alleged wrongful termination, sexual harassment or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age and disability.

Through National Arbitration and Mediation, Inc. (NAM), employers and their employees may access alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practices to promptly and effectively resolve workplace disputes.

NAM is an experienced and highly regarded provider of employment ADR services. With a national panel of employment experts, NAM offers litigants a fair and expeditious way to resolve employment-related disputes. NAM’s policy on employment ADR is guided by existing laws as well as its obligation to act in an impartial manner. In the interest of providing an appropriate and pristine forum for the resolution of employment disputes, the NAM employment program follows the Due Process Protocol for Mediation and Arbitration of Statutory Disputes Arising Out of the Employment Relationship (“Due Process Protocol”).
