In most, if not all, corporate arbitration arrangements, the arbitrator is paid by the company. That fact alone makes a truly neutral and disinterested stance on the part of the arbitrator virtually impossible.
Like the Toddster said... nope.Entirely correct.
In union - company arbitrationions, the costs are generally borne equally by both parties. Sometimes, if either part's position is particularly stupid, part of the arbitrator's award may force that party to cover both side's costs due to them wasting everybody's time by not settling a dumb case some time prior to getting to arbitration.
