The Arbitrator shall issue a written decision that sets forth the essential findings and conclusions upon which the Arbitrator’s award or decision is based within thirty (30) days after the conclusion of the arbitration hearing. The award rendered by the Arbitrator shall be final and binding (absent fraud or manifest error), and any arbitration award may be enforced by judgment entered or vacated in any court of competent jurisdiction. The prevailing party shall be reimbursed by the other party to the action for reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses relating to such action, with the exception of any action by an employee alleging a civil rights or statutory cause of action, in which case the Company shall pay the filing fees and costs of the arbitration and each party shall be responsible for its own attorneys’ fees and costs, provided that the arbitrator may grant any remedy or relief that a party could obtain from a court of competent jurisdiction on the basis of such claims.
