Beginning October 1, 2017, the AAA will apply one Employment Fee Schedule to any dispute between an individual and a business or organization where the individual is working or has worked, performing as an individual and not incorporated. This includes disputes involving work or worker related claims, including any statutory claims and any work-related claims under independent contractor agreements.

For a number of years the Association used two different employment dispute administrative fee schedules. One applied to employment “plan” cases and the other to “individually-negotiated employment contracts.” However, as use of individually signed contracts for wider groups of employees or workers has become more common, the AAA has determined not to continue to differentiate these relationships for the purpose of establishing its administrative fees and the payment of arbitrator and/or mediator compensation.
