Designing Dispute Resolution Machinery in the Employment Context
Sponsor
CISCDR Distinguished Visitor Lecture presented by CISCDR (Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Conflict and Dispute Resolution)
FEB 25, 2009
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom

We are familiar with the role of mediation and arbitration in resolving workplace disputes in the unionized sector, but that represents only 10 percent of the workforce. Are there, or should there be comparable protections for the remaining 100,000,000 workers?

This issue is not unique to the United States. Governments and private employers around the world have experimented with a variety of employment dispute resolution procedures, some with more success than others. Prof. Zack will look at what has been created, in places as diverse as South Africa, Cambodia and China, and discuss concepts to be considered when developing such procedures.
