ADR Workers’ Compensation Program eliminates delays… eliminates complications and leads to resolutions. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) expedites the resolution of disputed claims by replacing the jurisdiction of the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board with a highly streamlined process. With ADR, all disputed claims are subject to a 3-step process:
- Ombudsman- Claim is controlled so no outside legal entities can disrupt the claims process.
- Mediation- Decisions are made timely, so delays in the claim process are not warranted
- Arbitration- finality to the outcome of the claim
Collectively Bargained Workers’ Compensation (CBWC) delivers significant benefits to all parties involved.
