Learning Team ADR
University of Phoenix
Laws are put in place to maintain order, promote equality, honor expectations, influence conduct, and act as compromiser weather it’s a private or public law (Jennings, 2006). A learning team is considered a private setting. In order for rules or laws to be enforced in a private setting, all stakeholders must come to a contractual agreement(Jennings, 2006). Teams will be divided into odd numbers in an attempt to prevent a deadlock vote on opportunities facing the team. Dividing the teams into odd numbers isn’t always possible, so a deadlock is inevitable.
In the event of a deadlock, a neutral third party will be called upon in an attempt to mitigate a compromise amongst both parties. If both parties can not come to a compromise, the mediator will possess the tie-breaking vote. The mediators’ vote is non-binding, if the involved parties are not satisfied with the mediators’ decision, then binding arbitration is the next step. Binding arbitration means that the arbitrators’ has the last and final word and the team members must abide by their decision (Jennings, 2006).
Voting will take place on all and any opportunities that face the learning team, in the event of a deadlock, mediation will take place as stated above. All team members must be present in order for a vote to take place either in person, via teleconference, or any other means of communication deemed suitable by the team. All fees associated with arbitration and mediation will be divided equally amongst all team members, no matter what the final decision is.
