grievances may be a fact of life in todays business
world, but the high cost of employee litigation need not
be, according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading
provider of employment law information and publisher of
the new CCH Journal of Alternative Dispute
Resolution in Employment.
"With proper guidance, employers can dramatically
reduce the cost and disruption of courtroom litigation
through alternative dispute resolution (ADR)
processes," said David A. Larson, editor in
chief of the Journal.

Resolution in Employment examines the latest
alternative dispute resolution practices and procedures
and addresses workplace trends and legal developments,
providing a wealth of expert insight and analysis and
practical, easy-to-understand guidance. The Journal is
designed to help employment law and human resources
professionals, attorneys and consultants master the
essentials of ADR and successfully use ADR processes to
resolve employee disputes, while staying on the cutting
edge of new developments. It also will provide valuable
insights to experienced mediators, arbitrators, and other
dispute resolution professionals.

resolution and problem solving skills necessary to
resolve workplace grievances successfully. The use of ADR
processes and the adoption of a problem solving approach

potentially millions of dollars in damages and create a
healthier, more stable workplace" he added.
