The Neutrality Report
The Neutrality Project pools the collective experience and expertise of ALRA’s agencies on the subject most critical to their effectiveness – their neutrality. The success of ALRA agencies depends on the public and the parties they serve having confidence in the fairness of the process and the integrity of the agency. The purpose of the report is to articulate the standards of conduct which ALRA believes best ensures that high level of confidence.
- The report is broken into four chapters:
- Foundations of Neutrality;
- Conflicts and the Appearance of Conflicts of Interest; and
- Special Considerations Regarding Mediation.
In each, experts in administrative and labor law have weighed in with their analysis of what the governing principles are for an agency and/or agency officials in impartially and effectively administering the statutes with which they are entrusted.
