Two prerequisites for access:
- You must have tried to solve the dispute directly with the company, to no avail ;
- You must formally (by letter) entrust the Board with an arbitration mission (standard clause (in French))
50 euro for each party (administrative costs) + 85 euro (VAT not included) per hour of work for each arbiter (with an advance to be paid in some cases) + expert fees if necessary.
How does it work?
Two approved mediators will help the parties to find (by themselves and through reasonable negociation) a solution in their interest. There is always at least one jurist and one technician specialised in the matter concerned. A solution is usually found within two months. In case of failure, the parties can still try arbitration or take the matter to a court. .
Explain the problem in a letter and enclose a copy of any useful document.
