This paper investigates the advantages and effectiveness of applying alternative dispute resolution systems (ADR) as part of the thinking and dynamics associated with the current review of employment dispute resolution in Great Britain. The paper draws on knowledge and information obtained from an international study of ADR methods in various countries including Japan, New Zealand, USA and Cambodia. The paper seeks to demonstrate that there is a compelling body evidence to justify a degree of prescription in the use of ADR methods in dealing with employment disputes and both organisational and legislative level in Great Britain.
