Failure to Abide by Panel's Award

Failure to abide by an award rendered by a Hearing Panel

If the complaint against the REALTOR® principal is that, having properly submitted a dispute to arbitration, he has refused to abide by an award, such refusal should not be referred to the Grievance Committee as a violation of the Code of Ethics unless such refusal reflects an established pattern or practice of noncompliance with the commitment to arbitrate. A refusal to abide by an award in arbitration should be enforced in the manner set forth in Part Ten, Arbitration of Disputes, Section 56, Enforcement. (Revised 11/95)
