If your company uses American Arbitra-tion Association (AAA) rules to resolve employment disputes, you'll need to comply with a handful of updated rules that provide new safeguards to employees during arbitration.
The new changes affect administrative fees, expenses, arbitrators' compensation and deposits. They reflect recent federal and state case law developments. Among the key revisions:
- Administrative fees. The new rules cap employees' case-filing fee at $125. All additional administrative fees are now the employer's responsibility.
- Arbitrators' compensation. Unless an employee chooses to pay a portion of the arbitrator's compensation, the employer must pay that amount, too. The party requesting the postponement will pay any fee for postponements.
To read AAA rules for dispute resolution, go to www.adr.org, click on "Rules/Procedures," then "Rules," and scroll down to "National Rules for the Resolution of Employment Disputes."
