Golden Gate Dispute Resolution


Factfinding Panel presentation at CalPELRA

I had an opportunity on November 21, 2013 to serve on a panel of arbitrators at the annual conference of the CA Public Employment Labor Relations Association (CalPELRA) in Monterey CA.  The topic was "Factfinding and Interest Arbitration - Lessons Learned: An Arbitrator's Perspective." Serving on the panel with me were fellow arbitrator / factfinders Norm Brand and John LaRocco. Jonathan Holtzman from Renne, Sloan, Holtzman and Sakai was the moderator. Most of the discussion revolved around factfinding in Meyers Milias Brown (municipal government) jurisdictions since the factfinding statute kicked in on January 1, 2012. - Paul
