Commercial Litigation Remedies

Arbitration and mediation are frequently employed to resolve disputes outside of the court; clauses compelling disputing parties to partake in the former are now often written into commercial contracts. Arbitration is a private process where disputing parties agree that one or several individuals can make a decision about the dispute after receiving evidence and hearing arguments. Compared to traditional trials, arbitration can usually be completed more quickly and is less formal.. Arbitration has become increasingly popular over the years for several reasons such as it being the cheaper alternative with provides more control and privacy to both parties involved. At Shriyak, Bowman, Anderson, Gill & Kadochnikov attorneys are uniquely qualified to handle arbitration matter that comes into our office.

Common Disputes

There are 4 common disputes made in Employment Law matters:

  1. Wrongful Termination Allegations
  2. Wage Disputes, Discrimination
  3. Harassment Claims
  4. Severance Agreements.

Companies often embark on litigation in resolving employment disputes because management does not properly understand the consequence of such litigation and the psychological effect it may have on the business at hand. An employer can be held liable if supervisors harass workers even if the employee does not report harassment and suffers no tangible loss. The use of mediation is one way that a company’s efforts to address these complaints will be considered reasonable. Any settlement and its terms are entirely subject to the parties’ agreement and the entire process is generally confidential.
