Experienced, empathetic, effective neutrals
The JAMS Employment Practice Group includes retired federal, state trial and appellate judges and former litigators with years of dispute resolution experience, deep subject matter expertise and comprehensive knowledge of federal and state case law and statutes. They are adept at managing the emotional and legal aspects of sensitive employment matters.
Our neutrals receive ongoing training in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and stay abreast of emerging employment law issues, including claims under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and pandemic-related unsafe working conditions and retaliation claims. JAMS also provides neutrals and parties with live tech support during virtual and hybrid arbitration and mediation sessions.
