§ 1232. Arbitration; Definition; General Rules.
(a) Arbitration under these regulations is an adjudicative process in which an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators issues a decision on the merits after a hearing. Except as set forth herein, arbitrations are governed by the Administrative Procedure Act (commencing with Government Code Section 11370), Part I, Division 3, Title 2 of the Government Code.
(b) Before the arbitration the parties shall agree that the decision by the arbitrator(s) is binding or non-binding upon the parties. If the parties select non-binding arbitration, any party may reject the non-binding decision. If a party rejects the non-binding decision, the parties shall resume the same status as before arbitration and shall proceed as if arbitration had not taken place.
