Arbitration & Mediation

Washington, D.C. Employment Arbitration & Mediation Lawyer

Employers frequently require arbitration in the event of any employment dispute. When you have been the victim of discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, or a breach of contract, you may be forced into arbitration or mediation prior to any other legal recourse. At Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., we know how to assert the rights of our employee clients in arbitration proceedings.

Your best interests will be our first priority in court or in arbitration. We have over 60 combined years of experience in arbitrating employment claims and regularly appear before the American Arbitration Association and JAMS. Contact us for an initial consultation or case evaluation.

Employment arbitration may be required by an employee handbook or employee contract. Many arbitration and alternative dispute proceedings are held in forums favorable to the corporation. It is imperative that you consult with an experienced employment arbitration and mediation attorney prior to engaging in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to resolve your dispute.

We have experience with employee arbitration of such issues as:

  • Discrimination: We handle all cases of discrimination, including those involving age, race, gender, nationality, and religion, pregnancy or disability.
  • Contact disputes: Many corporations will require that executives or employees with contract disputes proceed with employment arbitration, mediation or another form of dispute resolution regarding contract dispute. We have experienced with breaches of contract, noncompete clauses, or severance package disputes.
  • Retaliation and wrongful termination: Our attorneys have over 60 combined years of experience in ADR involving retaliation and wrongful termination. If you have been fired from a job or retaliated against for reporting harassment, discrimination, or wrongdoing, we can assert your rights in arbitration proceedings.

Our firm is highly skilled in employment arbitration and other forms of ADR. We can provide the representation you need to achieve results that meet your goals. We have a record of returning significant settlements in arbitration and will aggressively assert your rights in any ADR proceeding. Our attorneys are members of the American Arbitration Association and Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS).
