Alternative Dispute Resolution
The General Assembly finds that harmonious relations between public employers and public employees are a necessary and most important factor in the effective and efficient operation of government, and that a proper forum for the understanding and resolution of employee grievances will contribute to the establishment and maintenance of harmony, good faith, and the quality of public service. The General Assembly also recognizes that the most effective and cost efficient means of resolving grievances occurs at the lowest level, and state agencies are encouraged to use methods of alternative dispute resolution to avoid a grievance hearing and further litigation. It is for the protection and in the interests of both the employee and the agency via a neutral method of dispute resolution and fair administrative review that the "State Employee Grievance Procedure Act", is enacted.
The Division of State Human Resources (Alternative Dispute Resolution Program) sponsors training in mediation theory and skills for those individuals who may serve as mediators or for those who might be involved in using mediation skills in their jobs.
