Abstract

Using newly collected data on labor disputes in Taiwan, we study how laborers fare in labor mediation. Our strongest result is that in the cases involving small claims, workers obtained a substantially high portion of their claim, a result unlikely to occur if those laborers had to resort to litigation. Overall, our study indicates that labor mediation is effective in helping the financially disadvantaged individual workers to obtain substantial recovery from their employers.

Keywords: labor mediation, labor litigation, settlement rate, ADR
