What happens if arbitration fails?
In the event that a party fails to appear at the arbitration, the arbitration must still proceed. The party who is present must present evidence in support of their entire claim, proving to the arbitrator’s satisfaction both liability and damages. An arbitrator may not issue an award solely on the default of a party.
How long does an arbitrator have make decision?
Usually, the rules of arbitration services provide that the arbitrator is to decide the case within 30 days after the case has been submitted.
What are some of the problems with arbitration?
One of the biggest faults I see in arbitration is that it is strictly adversarial, meaning that there is a person, or in some cases a panel of people, whose job it is to make a decision. They must determine a winner in a dispute. Arbitration leaves no room for finding a solution to the problem.
Can a qualified arbitrator deliver a binding decision?

Arbitration is different from mediation because the neutral arbitrator has the authority to make a decision about the dispute. The arbitration process may be either binding or non-binding. When arbitration is binding, the decision is final, can be enforced by a court, and can only be appealed on very narrow grounds.
How does an arbitrator make a decision?
The arbitrator listens to both sides, looks at the evidence you’ve sent in and decides what the outcome should be. When the arbitrator makes a decision, this is called an award and it’s legally binding. If you don’t agree with the decision, you can’t take your case to court to get the decision changed.

Do both parties have to agree to arbitration?
