Should I Have My Employees Sign An Arbitration Agreement?

Arbitration is an alternative to court litigation. This is a binding way to resolve disputes. If parties subject themselves to arbitration, they are bound by the decision the arbitrator (basically a private judge) makes. And, that decision can only be appealed in very limited situations.
Before a company has their employees sign arbitration agreements, it needs to consider the pros and cons, costs, legal issues and other considerations.
