What is an Arbitration Agreement?

Arbitration Agreements (cover) Acuerdos de Arbitraje

Arbitration agreements, which are often found in pre-printed consumer contracts, require that the parties to the contract resolve disputes that arise in binding arbitration, rather than in court before a judge and/or jury.

What is binding arbitration?

Binding arbitration involves the submission of a dispute to a neutral party who renders a decision following a hearing. Arbitration takes the place of a trial before a judge or jury. Because the arbitration is binding, grounds for appealing or setting aside the arbitration decision are very limited and may frequently not be available at all. If a person signs a contract containing a mandatory, binding arbitration agreement, he or she gives up the right to go to court to have his or her claim resolved.
