ADR in Public Employment

ADR in Public Employment is a dynamic and growing area of practice. The seminar focuses on the use of negotiation, mediation, fact-finding and arbitration (interest and grievance) by public employees, unions and employers. We will discuss national trends, generally, and case law under the New York State Taylor, Civil Service and Education Laws, specifically. The seminar also emphasizes the development of ADR legal skills in public sector labor and employment law. In teams, we will prepare and present mock negotiations, and mediation and arbitration cases based on fact patterns from the instructor's ADR practice. The final paper will be a post-hearing brief in the mock exercise or a research paper on a timely topic in public employment.
