A Practical Guide to Alternate Dispute Resolutions and Hearings


November 7, 2007


The use of alternate dispute resolutions (ADR) has increased over the last few years, as more people are recognizing that these mediation, conciliation or settlement meetings are not only effective, but preferable to lengthy and expensive hearings.

Whether before the Commission des normes du travail (CNT), the Commission des relations du travail (CRT), the Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CSST), in grievance adjudication, or before a civil court, every ADR primarily requires solid preparation and thorough knowledge of the case.

This workshop will help you take a more in-depth look at alternate dispute resolution techniques used in labour and employment law, and will advise you on how to prepare yourself and your lawyer for and effectively facilitate ADR meetings.
