Disclosures by the OIA

You can find different types of disclosures from this page by clicking on one of the numbered items below. California law or California’s Ethics Standards for Neutral Arbitrators in Contractual Arbitration require these disclosures in consumer arbitrations.

Item one provides a table that contains information about arbitration demands the OIA has received in the past five years in a sortable format. It complies with Section 1281.96 of the California Code of Civil Procedure. The OIA updates this information quarterly.

Item two provides information about the OIA's contractual relationships with parties and the neutral arbitrators on the OIA panel. It responds to Standard 8 (b) (1) and 8 (c) of the Ethics Standards.

Item three provides certain information about OIA arbitrations that have closed on or after July 1, 2002 because of action by the neutral arbitrator. It responds to a part of Standard 8 (b) (2) (C) of the Ethics Standards. The OIA updates this information weekly.  

Item four provides a table that contains information about arbitration demands the OIA has received since January 1, 2003 in a searchable format.  The OIA continues to maintain this information even though it is no longer required.  The table has been replaced with item one, a sortable disclosure table.  The OIA updates this information quarterly.  

Item five provides the demographic data relative to ethnicity, race, disability, veteran status, gender identity, and sexual orientation of all OIA arbitrators as self-reported by the arbitrators.  It complies with Section 1281.96 (a) (12) of the California Civil Code of Procedure.

The first, third and forth items provide information about individual OIA arbitrations. Consistent with the statute and the Ethics Standards, the tables do not list the names of individual claimants or respondents, only organizations.  The different tables deal with different groups of the arbitrations the OIA has administered.  The annual reports discuss all of the arbitrations, though collectively, not individually.  Reports for each year the OIA has existed are posted under the Reports tab.
