Assembled from Dispute Resolution Journal - the flagship publication of the American Arbitration Association - the chapters in the Handbook have all, where necessary , been revised and updated prior to publication. The book is succinct, comprehensive and a practical introduction to the use of arbitration and ADR, written by leading practitioners and scholars.

This work begins with a general introduction to employment ADR, discussing such topics as where plaintiffs can better vindicate their rights, general employment law strategies, how to assess workplace disputes and conflicts, and options for resolution. Employers are offered valuable advice on how to implement a successful employment arbitration program, with real-life examples to work from.

Mediation of employment conflicts and employment arbitration are explored and a comparison of the two is provided, including with respect to statutory employment conflicts.
