Arbitration and Grievances

Arbitration of workplace grievances is prevalent in both union and non-union settings. Barnes & Thornburg attorneys have assisted union and non-union clients from coast-to-coast in developing or negotiating:

  • Work rules
  • Disciplinary processes
  • Grievance procedures

In the non-union sector, our lawyers have helped in the drafting and implementation of arbitration systems that have allowed employers to minimize the number of cases brought to federal court on discrimination issues. Barnes & Thornburg lawyers have successfully defended management decisions in arbitrations across the U.S.
