Do It Right Or Not At All: A Longitudinal Evaluation Of A Conflict Managment System Implementation, Benjamin B. Dunford, Kevin J. Mumford, R. Wayne Boss, Alan D. Boss, David S. Boss 2017 Purdue University

Do It Right Or Not At All: A Longitudinal Evaluation Of A Conflict Managment System Implementation, Benjamin B. Dunford, Kevin J. Mumford, R. Wayne Boss, Alan D. Boss, David S. Boss

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

We analyzed an eight-year multi-source longitudinal data set that followed a healthcare system in the Eastern United States as it implemented a major conflict management initiative to encourage line managers to consistently perform Personal Management Interviews (or PMIs) with their employees. PMIs are interviews held between two individuals, designed to prevent or quickly resolve interpersonal problems before they escalate to formal grievances. This initiative provided us a unique opportunity to empirically test key predictions of Integrated Conflict Management System (or ICMS) theory. Analyzing survey and personnel file data from 5,449 individuals from 2003 to 2010, we found that employees ...


The Devil Is In The Details: Attorney Heterogeneity And Employment Arbitration Outcomes, J. Ryan Lamare 2017 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

The Devil Is In The Details: Attorney Heterogeneity And Employment Arbitration Outcomes, J. Ryan Lamare

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

Conventional wisdom holds that hiring a lawyer will improve outcomes for non-union employees who take individual rights complaints to arbitration. However, the limited amount of empirical scholarship into this topic has rarely accounted for the concurrent influence of employer representatives, or for the presence and effects of employee and employer attorney heterogeneity. I analyze all arbitration awards rendered within the securities industry from the implementation of its ADR program through the late-2000s, and first find that hiring an attorney benefits employees only in the rare cases that employers do not also include an agent. I then account for attorney selection ...


Disputant Preferences For Mediated Or Adjudicated Processes In Administrative Agencies: The Occupational Safety And Health Review Commission Settlement Part Program, Deanna Malatesta, Lisa Blomgren Amsler, Susanna Foxworthy Scott 2017 Indiana University

Disputant Preferences For Mediated Or Adjudicated Processes In Administrative Agencies: The Occupational Safety And Health Review Commission Settlement Part Program, Deanna Malatesta, Lisa Blomgren Amsler, Susanna Foxworthy Scott

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

Previous research examining disputants’ preferences for mediation over more formal adjudicative proceedings is limited and mostly experimental. Moreover, this work has not examined preferences in relation to repeated experience with various types of proceedings. We surveyed disputants who have experienced different types of proceedings in administrative adjudication and administrative law judge mediation in the Settlement Part Program at the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC). We find that the higher the perceptions of procedural justice, the greater the preference for use of mediation. In addition, the more total experience disputants have in the OSHRC dispute system (including both adjudication ...

Labor Relations Conflict In The Workplace: Scale Development, Consequences And Solutions, Lulu Zhou, Meng Xi, Xufan Zhang, Shuming Zhao

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

Because the goals of employers and employees are often incompatible, conflicts are inevitable and an essential part of organizational life. The three studies reported in this paper addressed the issues of identifying the dimensions of workplace conflicts within organizations, exploring the consequences of conflicts, and finding appropriate methods of conflict resolution. The first study identified and developed three dimensions of labor relations conflict, including interest-based, rights-based, and emotion-based conflicts. The second study explored two sets of individual outcomes of labor relations conflicts and found labor relations conflicts had a negative effect on employee job satisfaction and affective commitment and positive ...


Adr-Based Workplace Conflict Management Systems: A Case Of American Exceptionalism, Paul Teague, William Roche, Denise Currie, Tom Gormley 2017 Queen's University Belfast

Adr-Based Workplace Conflict Management Systems: A Case Of American Exceptionalism, Paul Teague, William Roche, Denise Currie, Tom Gormley

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

[Excerpt] The diffusion of ADR-based conflict management systems is a development increasingly highlighted in the literature. Organizations are seen as putting in place multiple procedures and practices so that different varieties of workplace conflict can be effectively addressed. Just why organizations are electing to introduce these integrated bundles of innovative conflict management practices is a matter of debate, but many view the development as transforming the manner in which workplace problems are managed in modern organizations, with some even pronouncing that it amounts to the rewriting of the social contract at work (Lipsky and Seeber 2006). This paper argues that ...


Why Don’T They Complain? The Social Determinants Of Chinese Migrant Workers’ Grievance Behaviors, Duanyi Yang 2017 Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Why Don’T They Complain? The Social Determinants Of Chinese Migrant Workers’ Grievance Behaviors, Duanyi Yang

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

Using survey data from China, I examine how migrant workers respond to violations of labor law in their workplaces. The central puzzle explored is why, given apparent widespread violations, some workers choose not to pursue remedies. I find that although workers with shared local identities with their employers are more likely to work without employment contracts, they are less likely to be exposed to safety and health hazards at work and less likely to interpret problems experienced as a violation of their legal rights. This paper extends the research on grievance behavior by drawing on research from Law and Society ...


Organizational Conflict Resolution And Strategic Choice: Evidence From A Survey Of Fortune 1000 Companies, David B. Lipsky, Ariel C. Avgar, J. Ryan Lamare 2017 Cornell University

Organizational Conflict Resolution And Strategic Choice: Evidence From A Survey Of Fortune 1000 Companies, David B. Lipsky, Ariel C. Avgar, J. Ryan Lamare

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

In this paper we develop the argument that a firm’s ADR strategies are likely to be associated with a firm’s use of one conflict resolution option or the other. More specifically, we examine whether a firm’s use of either arbitration or mediation is a function of (1) the extent to which the use of either of these dispute resolution processes aligns with the goals and objectives management is seeking to advance, and (2) the extent of the firm’s commitment to the use of these practices. We expect to find that an organization’s use of either ...


Third-Party Intervention And The Preservation Of Bargaining Relationships, Bradley R. Weinberg 2017 Queen's University - Kingston, Ontario

Third-Party Intervention And The Preservation Of Bargaining Relationships, Bradley R. Weinberg

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

This article uses longitudinal contact data to examine if third-party dispute resolution procedures available in Ontario improve the health of bargaining relationships and contribute to their preservation. It performs this in two manners: (1) using survival analysis to see how the mechanisms correlate with the likelihood of relationship dissolution and (2) using dynamic panel models to observe their state dependence. The latter is undertaken to see if third-party intervention pushes the parties to settle subsequent agreements earlier in the process – a finding that would reveal another aspect of relationship preservation if those earlier interventions are shown to correlate with lower ...


Transforming New Zealand Employment Relations: At The Intersection Of Institutional Dispute Resolution And Workplace Conflict Management, Gaye Greenwood Ph.D., Erling Rasmussen 2017 Auckland University of Technology

Transforming New Zealand Employment Relations: At The Intersection Of Institutional Dispute Resolution And Workplace Conflict Management, Gaye Greenwood Ph.D., Erling Rasmussen

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

In New Zealand, the contemporary shift from highly regulated, collectivist employment rights to individual employment relationships included statutory direction to mediation. Good faith negotiation in the workplace and state provision of mediation were to be the primary mechanisms for resolution of ‘employment relationship problems’ (ERP). This paper investigates the intersection between workplace conflict management and institutional provision of mediation. We investigated ERP resolution by drawing on empirical evidence from 38 narrative interviews where participants recounted experiences of employment relationship problem (ERP) resolution. We analysed 243 ERP by comparing settlements to end employment relationships with resolution of ERP where relationships endured ...


Decision-Maker And Context Effects In Employment Arbitration, Mark Gough, Alexander Colvin 2017 The Pennsylvania State University

Decision-Maker And Context Effects In Employment Arbitration, Mark Gough, Alexander Colvin

Conflict and its Resolution in the Changing World of Work: A Conference and Special Issue Honoring David B. Lipsky

Using a novel survey of 284 employment arbitrators, this study investigates how decision-maker characteristics and the context of the arbitration proceeding affect employee outcomes. We analyze the predictors of settlement before an arbitrator award and, if no settlement is reached, the likelihood an employee will receive a verdict in their favor after a full hearing. We find pre-arbitration dispute resolution procedures have significant effects on settlement behavior and employee outcomes. The characteristics of the presiding arbitrator as well as the structure of the arbitration proceeding were also found to affect employee outcomes at trial. This study contributes to the existing ...


European Platform Undeclared Work 2017 Platform Survey Report: Organisational Characteristics Of Enforcement Bodies, Measures Adopted To Tackle Undeclared Work, And The Use Of Databases And Digital Tools, Colin C. Williams 2017 University of Sheffield

European Platform Undeclared Work 2017 Platform Survey Report: Organisational Characteristics Of Enforcement Bodies, Measures Adopted To Tackle Undeclared Work, And The Use Of Databases And Digital Tools, Colin C. Williams

Colin C Williams

This report presents the main findings of the first online survey of members of the European Platform Tackling Undeclared Work. A total of 23 Member States responded.

Organisational characteristics of enforcement bodies

Undeclared work covers paid activities that are lawful as regards their nature but are not declared to public authorities so as to evade either payment of taxes, social security contributions and/or labour laws. In three-quarters of Member States, responsibility for these three forms of evasion lies in separate public authorities, with each having separate targets and key performance indicators (KPIs). The outcome is a departmental ‘silos’ approach ...
