Looking for an Arbitration Award? Here's the Story


If you have ever tried to find a copy of an arbitrator's opinions, you may have felt frustrated. At Publication and Confidentiality of Labor and Employment Arbitration Awards, the Alaska Employment Law Blog has a wonderful overview of how such awards get published (and don't) and where you can look to find them. The author, Robert W. Landau, is a full time labor arbitrator.
