Although mandatory employment arbitration is usually supplemented by the signing of an arbitration agreement, usually at the time of hiring, companies take arbitration simply by announcing that these procedures have been incorporated into the organization`s employment policy. 3.5% of companies had also adopted a mandatory conciliation with this second mechanism. With the 50.4 per cent of employers asking workers to sign an agreement, this means that a total of 53.9 per cent of all firms had adopted a mandatory work reconciliation by one of these two mechanisms in the survey. Procedures offer only part of the story of how arbitration works. Under the established right of arbitration, if the arbitration agreement is not used procedure, then the arbitrator has the full power to decide how the case is executed, with very limited grounds for reconsideration. Therefore, the neutrality and fairness of the arbitrator is essential to ensure fairness in arbitration. The image of arbitration as a creature of unionized employment began to shift when the Supreme Court began to submit legal labour rights in its 1991 Gilmer decision, which was discussed above. Mr. Gilmer not only gave employers the obligation to obtain legal rights, but he also gave employers the green light to require employees to sign arbitration agreements as a binding clause and condition of employment.
The case and its descendants allowed employers to unilaterally introduce arbitration procedures to cover legal labour rights and to make these procedures mandatory in the sense that the employer would refuse to hire a candidate who did not sign the arbitration agreement. However, in almost all countries, the Tribunal owes several non-devalable tasks. This will generally be the case: in October 2011, the petitioner learns that the respondent intends to cease operations in India. On the basis of the existing contracts, the petitioner had approached various banks to obtain loans, and all of that financing would be threatened if the respondent closed the store halfway and the agreements were cancelled. Accordingly, the petitioner invoked arbitration proceedings under section 13.2 of the SAC agreement and, in response, the respondent denied the existence of an arbitration agreement and agreement. The petitioner then sent a notice to the respondent and submitted the petition to the expiry of a 30-day period from Section 11 of the Arbitration – Conciliation Act, 1996 (“Act”), appointing the arbitrator. By filing the petition, the respondent challenged the existence and/or validity of the bag contract and collective agreements, according to which it is either out of date or never came into force. The petitioner sought the appointment of the arbitrator on the basis that the bag agreement was valid and binding, while the respondent wanted to question the existence of the SAC agreement, thereby questioning the existence of the arbitration agreement.
