Today, arbitrations are not limited to companies with unions. More and more non-union employers are electing to institute arbitration programs or enter into arbitration agreements with employees in order to prevent employment litigation in the courts. Employers often find this approach to be quicker, less expensive, and less disruptive to company operations. Often employers and employees both simply want a fair and impartial decision to their dispute, the sooner the better. Arbitration provides that opportunity..

Mr. Harper advises employers on various internal and external arbitration options. We draft arbitration agreements and assist in presenting the new system to employees. We also have extensive experience representing parties at arbitrations. When arbitrating a dispute in a union contract, Tom Harper exclusively represents management and employers.
