The findings or recommendations of the committee shall be in the nature of arbitration or settlement, but its findings and recommendations shall not affect the rights of parties to resort to any arbitration proceedings available under authority of Sections 6-6-1 through 6-6-16 or as may be otherwise provided by law, nor shall any of the provisions of this article affect any legal or equitable rights that any person may have in a court having jurisdiction of such matters nor shall the findings or recommendations of the committee be admissible as evidence in any court of law.
