Zurich
"Zurich, which insures businesses such as hotels and restaurants with multiple locations, including hospitals and churches, had a regular adjustment process in effect" (Rooney, 2008, p. 3). "But Zurich officials decided to enhance the normal adjustment process and created the Gulf Coast Claims Alternative Dispute Resolution Program" (Rooney, 2008, p. 3). "Yet after Hurricane Katrina and two other hurricanes slammed into the Gulf Coast during September 2005, Zurich Insurance swung into action. (Rooney, 2008, p. 3).
"The Zurich program involves three steps" (Rooney, 2008, p. 3). "The initial step involves a meeting between a Zurich representative and the policyholder to address issues that are delaying payout of a claim" (Rooney, 2008, p. 3). "If agreement is reached, the policyholder is paid immediately" (Rooney, 2008, p. 3). "If no final agreement occurs, the policyholders are then asked if they are willing to participate in non-binding mediation" (Rooney, 2008, p. 3). "Feinberg chooses the mediators from a list of neutrals he compiled along with Zurich officials" (Rooney, 2008, p. 3). "If the first two steps are unsuccessful, the final step involves binding arbitration" (Rooney, 2008, p. 3).
These are alternative dispute resolutions Coastal County Clerk of Court can use to help resolve the problem they are facing. By using the Zurich program it would save the taxpayers an abundance of money in which they would pay in court costs and attorney fees. By using the program it could help settle many disputes between the employees and the employer, which would save the county and give them more resources to use toward resolving many issues they may have.
AT&T Global Information Solution
"Few companies have made the commitment to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) more effectively than NCR (recently renamed AT&T Global Information Solutions)" (Carver & Vondra, 1994, p. 1). "NCR executives made a firm commitment to alternative dispute resolution a decade ago, and the results have been dramatic: the number of the company's filed lawsuits (excluding insured risks) pending in the United States dropped from 263 in March 1984 to 28 in November 1993" (Carver & Vondra, 1994, p. 1). "Moreover, the reduction in outside fees has not increased the costs of in-house counsel" (Carver & Vondra, 1994, p. 1). "NCR manages its filed cases with only four in-house lawyers and four paralegals" (Carver & Vondra, 1994, p. 1).
"Rick Quist, an attorney with AT&T, said he has used mediation since he started practicing law in the mid-1980s" (Rooney, 2008, p. 4). "AT&T has regularly used mediation to resolve personal-injury matters and large commercial disputes since 2001, Quist added" (Rooney, 2008, p. 4). "Company officials...
