Arbitration is possible in theory. However, while attempts are being made to create a practical framework, there are few organisations in Afghanistan offering competent arbitration services.

According to the Afghanistan Arbitration Law, the employer and employee can include an arbitration clause or provision in the employment contract. The arbitration clause is enforceable.

Even if the parties have not included an arbitration clause in their contract, the parties can refer the dispute to arbitration upon mutual consent.
