"Grievance Guide, Thirteenth Edition" Provides a Complete Picture of the Precedents and Guidelines Pertinent to the Arbitration of Grievance Issues Today

ARLINGTON, Va., March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA has published the Thirteenth Edition of Grievance Guide, a resource offering detailed summaries of thousands of real-life arbitration awards to illustrate the factors arbitrators consider when ruling on grievances, and provides a complete picture, topic by topic, of the precedents and guidelines labor arbitrators use to address grievance issues today.


The Grievance Guide helps practitioners effectively resolve disputes under collective bargaining agreements by acquainting them with the criteria and other pertinent contributors to prior arbitration rulings, which they can consult in resolving current grievance issues. The updated Thirteenth Edition has been extensively revised to include cross-references to Bloomberg BNA's Labor Arbitration Cumulative Digest and Index, and provides significant updates and changes to chapters on:

  • Electronic communications and technology, including a new section on social media issues
  • Employer investigations of asserted misconduct
  • Family and medical leave
  • Absenteeism and tardiness

The Guide presents—in an easy-to-use handbook—analysis of significant arbitrator awards published by Bloomberg BNA's Labor Arbitration and Dispute Settlements, available in print as part of Bloomberg BNA's Labor Relations Reporter service and online as part of the Labor & Employment Law Resource Center.

Grievance Guide, Thirteenth Edition, is authored by Karen L. Ertel, Assistant Managing Editor of Bloomberg BNA's Daily Labor Report and a contributor to the ABA/Bloomberg BNA treatise The Fair Labor Standards Act.
