This paper examines the emergence of private alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in Australian workplaces through two surveys and three case studies. The surveys demonstrate that the uptake of private ADR has been slow although most practitioners describe their business as growing. The case studies illustrate deficiencies in the conduct of ADR including breaches of ADR process, ethics, justice and misuse of power. In the light of the apparent growth in private ADR, the cases raise questions regarding training and standards for workplace ADR practitioners.
