Dispute Resolution Plans
Dispute resolution plans provide methods for how disputes will be handled with the goal of achieving a resolution early and avoiding costly and time-consuming processes such as litigation or arbitration. It’s all about being proactive verses reactive. Traditional litigation and arbitration is reactive, and those processes are aimed at deciding disputes after one or both parties have already reached impasse. Dispute resolution plans are about looking for the potential problems in advance and addressing them as soon as possible before they become unmanageable. Taking proactive steps today can help reduce the risk of costly and time-consuming litigation or arbitration in the future.
We actively administer these plans, including the Peace Keeper Systems plan. Dispute resolution policies and procedures can be included in nearly all contracts and employment agreements. Our plans have been highly successful in reducing litigation risk between employer and employee, nursing homes and residents and in many other contracted relationships.
