A: A Kansas employment law could advise, but your question remains open for a week, and it includes the Arbitration/Mediation category. Until you're able to consult with a local attorney, as a general matter, that is a somewhat vague statement. It is not exact in terms of exactly what it means, as opposed to a statement that might promise the arrangement of insurance coverage, which is more definitive in nature. Good luck
