What are the Benefits of Mediation?

Are you experiencing an employment law dispute? If so, you may have concerns about how long your case will take to resolve as well as the cost of legal fees. What you may not know is that mediation can be an effective alternative to litigation. Considered a more hands-on approach, mediation involves the presence of a third neutral party or mediator. The goal of the mediator is to facilitate an equitable solution. This is accomplished by carefully listening to each party and keeping the mediation sessions focused on resolving the issues at hand.

A knowledgeable lawyer can explain to you that mediation has the following benefits over traditional employment law litigation:

  • Less time consuming: A work-related dispute can interfere greatly with your life. Thus, it is essential that you resolve your employment dispute as fast as possible. One of the reasons business and employees alike favor mediation is because it is substantially faster than litigation.
  • Less expensive: Yet another reason many parties choose mediation is because it is much cheaper than litigation.
  • Resolves conflicts privately and effectively: Perhaps the ultimate reason employers and employees like mediation is because it is effective. It allows the disputing parties to take control of the case and determine the outcome in a manner that is private and timely.

Although mediation has numerous benefits over litigation, it is not suited for every employment case. If you are unsure about whether mediation is right for you, contact an experienced employment law attorney for more information.
