Time limits for pursuing remedies under the ADR Policy are the same as if pursued through governmental administrative agencies and courts of competent jurisdiction.

Remedies obtainable through arbitration are the same as those available as if the matter were tried in court; provided that the arbitrator cannot impose criminal penalties, exact fines or grant injunctive relief except to the extent such relief would be permitted in a court of law of competent jurisdiction. Any court of competent jurisdiction may enforce the ADR Policy and be empowered to enter judgment on an arbitration award entered in accordance with the ADR Policy.
