STRATEGIC DRAFTING OF MEDIATION FORMS

 

John Sands has been mediating and arbitrating for many years. Out of his work has come a body of thinking about various mediation and arbitration forms, what they must include and how and when they are presented. Some of these include the Mediation Agreement, Appropriate Cover Letter, Arbitration Agreement Modified to Include Mediation and the Memorandum of Understanding.

 

John will discuss his process in establishing these forms and his thinking behind them.

 

A full-time provider of impartial conflict management services, John Sands has arbitrated and mediated more than 4,000 labor-management, employee benefit, trustee deadlock, withdrawal liability, and employment law disputes including race, age, sex and disability discrimination, sexual harassment, whistle-blower, executive contract, wage and hour, and other statutory employment-related claims. A graduate of Princeton and Yale Law, John has served as arbitrator for the NFL, NHL, Major League Baseball, the International Court of Arbitration for Sport, and industries ranging from railroads and manufacturing to longshore and higher education. He has chaired the Labor and Employment Law Sections of three associations and currently serves as Secretary of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. In past incarnations he represented both unions and employers and, for ten years and was a professor of law at Albany Law School. He has lectured throughout the United States and Canada to both lawyers and lay people on law and dispute resolution and has appeared in Who's Who in America, in the East, in Labor, in American Law, and Best Lawyers in America.
