Classification of arbitration petition

We classify a petition for arbitration using our arbitration impact analysis system.


Arbitrations are scheduled on a priority system, which enables us to provide more efficient scheduling to parties.  

Impact I cases are those involving terminations, suspensions of 5 days or more, layoffs, class action cases, and any case affecting the health and safety of employees. These cases are scheduled for hearing within 1 to 3 months, depending on the level of urgency. The remaining cases are classified as Impact II, and are scheduled within 3 to 6 months.


After we docket and classify the petition, we notify the parties of the pending petition, its impact analysis classification, and the scheduling procedures.
