Arbitration: A Cost-Efficient Alternative to Litigation of Workplace Disputes 

Monday, July 13, 2015 1:30:00 PM Categories: Finance

For both employers and employees, litigation of workplace disputes in court can be time consuming, drawn out, and very expensive. An often welcomed alternative to litigating disputes is binding arbitration. More and more frequently, employers are asking their employees to sign arbitration agreements. Arbitration agreements require those who sign them to resolve any disputes by binding arbitration rather than in court before a judge or jury. While arbitration does not take place in a courtroom, it does resemble a trial in the sense that disputes are presented to a neutral party (an “arbitrator”) who hears the case and renders a final decision or award.

Tuesday, February 10, 2015 3:36:00 PM

Most of us know the expression, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” Yet those who invested heavily in technology stocks in the late 1990s did just that, and many lost substantial assets when the bubble burst and concentrated positions in these overvalued stocks declined significantly. On the other hand, risk averse investors who place all their money in conservative investments like bonds and cash miss the long-term growth potential of stocks that can help protect portfolios against inflation. The asset allocation process, or investment diversification across asset classes, determines approximately 90% of investment performance and is the crucial factor for portfolio success, according to a widely recognized study by Brinson, Singer and Beebower.
