ADR / Collectively Bargained WC Programs


Since 1993, the state of California has permitted labor unions and employers to develop and implement alternative dispute resolution systems that are faster and more cost-effective than traditional litigation at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.

Bradford & Barthel’s ADR team has been involved in the development, implementation, and litigation within Labor Code 3201.5 and Labor Code 3201.7 ADR programs since they were first implemented.

From developing language for collective bargaining agreements, to assisting with negotiation between the labor unions and employers, to working within programs to achieve excellent results, Bradford & Barthel has the experience and knowledge to handle these cases effectively. We also provide training to employers, carriers, and third-party administrators that are involved in this unique area of litigation, and our attorneys have been recognized throughout the industry for their expertise in ADR.
