Types of Arbitration

Forms of Contractual Arbitration

In the years before arbitration became enforceable, corporations found that many assets and business relationships were being destroyed through years of expensive litigation.  In their requests for a simpler method, the U.S. Arbitration Act of 1925 was passed by Congress.  The subsequent Federal Arbitration Act as it applies today was further defined by the Supreme Court in the late 20th century and preempts state arbitration laws.

Agreements to abide by arbitration are legally binding and decisions found by arbitration are generally final and binding.  Certain disputes may be excluded from arbitration by law.

Arbitration proceedings may be between individuals, corporation or states. It may also be used between parties in different countries and even can be used to settle World Trade Organization disputes between countries.  The use of arbitration between employees and employers is becoming common to resolve disputes of defamation, discrimination and others.

Labor Arbitration

Wage and other labor disputes are commonly resolved through binding arbitration.  Labor unions have embraced the arbitration process for at least the last 100 years. Arbitration has been made a key facet of federal labor policy by the Supreme Court. Organizations such as Major League Baseball, the NBA and others settle disputes with players through an arbitration process.

Judicial Arbitration

Arbitration over child custody and other family law disputes can by ordered by some state courts.  Although not binding, the arbitration process is used as a first step in resolving such disputes.
