It is common for employers to require their employees to enter into a written arbitration agreement at the beginning of the employment relationship. Arbitration, traditionally, is a binding process where a single “neutral” person or panel of neutral persons (usually lawyers or retired judges), agreed upon by all parties to a case, hears the issues and renders a decision.
