Arbitration agreements are agreements found in many employment contracts that require employers and employees to resolve disputes through arbitration rather than the civil litigation process. Employers tend to prefer arbitration to litigation, as it is usually faster and cheaper, and many employees sign employment contracts containing arbitration clauses without even knowing that they are giving up their right to file a lawsuit.
At Martin & Bontrager, APC, we work hard to protect employee rights during the arbitration process. We will thoroughly review your contract in order to determine whether the arbitration agreement is enforceable in the first place and challenge it if it is questionable. In the event that you are required to arbitrate your dispute, an experience arbitration attorney will aggressively advocate on your behalf and work to resolve your case a favorably as possible.
