The Industrial Relations Association of Northern California (IRANC), now called the Labor and Employment Relations Association of Northern California (LERANC), will be holding a luncheon on “A Fact-Finding How To” on March 27, 2012. Speaking on a panel will be Arbitrators Catherine Harris, John LaRocco, and Katherine Thomson.
In light of AB 646 (which provides for fact-finding under the MMBA), many people are wondering about the mechanics of fact-finding. How are fact-finding hearings different from grievance arbitrations? How do neutral arbitrators deal with party-designated panel members in tripartite fact-finding? How do you handle expert witnesses? The panel members will address these and other issues related to fact-finding.
