The Labour Relations Agency Arbitration Scheme Explained
You can use the Labour Relations Agency Arbitration Scheme to resolve an employment–related dispute (a “claim”) instead of going to a tribunal.
An arbitrator’s decision is binding as a matter of law and has the same effect as a tribunal.
The Scheme is entirely voluntary. Its use must be agreed by all parties to a claim.
This booklet explains the benefits of using the Scheme and how to use it.
More detailed guidance is contained within the Guide to the Scheme.
