Workplace Alternative Dispute Resolution


Workplace Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) consists of a variety of approaches to early intervention and dispute resolution. Many of these approaches include the use of a neutral individual such as a mediator who can assist disputing parties in resolving their disagreements. ACHASM has negotiated an agreement with RAG Strategists in order to enable members to receive this service at a reduced cost.
