Dallas Employment Law Arbitrator: Arbitrator Selection Process

// Dallas, Texas, United States // Attorney Keith Clouse (Blog) // Keith Clouse

Keith Clouse, a Dallas employment law arbitrator, notes that many parties believe a key advantage to arbitration is that the parties can choose an arbitrator with subject matter expertise and a style that suits them. Because arbitrator selection can impact the parties’ experience and the ultimate outcome, parties and their attorneys must carefully consider the arbitrator selection process.

In some instances, the underlying employment contract contains an arbitration clause that provides a method for arbitrator selection or proscribes the characteristics required of the arbitrator. For example, the parties might agree that they will select an arbitrator from a particular dispute resolution firm or that they will select an arbitrator with at least ten years of employment law experience.

In other situations, the parties decide to arbitrate after the dispute has already arisen. Then, the rules of the administering organization (such as the American Arbitration Association) generally govern the arbitrator selection process. In a typical matter, the administering organization provides the parties with a list of arbitrator candidates. The parties strike the candidates they are unwilling to use and rank the remaining ones. After comparing the lists, the administering organization selects the arbitrator who was most preferred by the parties.
