California law allows unions and employers to provide for a collectively bargained workers’ compensation program that replaces much of the overburdened and litigious state administered workers’ compensation system. That collectively bargained program is known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) for workers’ compensation.

ADR eliminates delays, eliminates complications and leads to resolutions. ADR streamlines the claims process to resolve disputed claims sooner and delivers significant benefits to contractors and their employees.

Resolve Disputes a better way and reduce the number and severity of disputed work-related injury claims.

Improve Access to quality medical treatment and prompt compensation to get injured workers back to work sooner.

Minimize Litigation and shorten claims by utilizing an ombudsman or mediator to avoid unnecessary antagonism between the employer and employee.
