Employment Mediation is an Alternative to Going to Court for Employment Issues

No matter the business, disputes are bound to arise at some point. Disputes can disrupt the daily activity of the workplace and can escalate into situations that can cost employers and employees time and money to resolve.

Mediation of an employment matter is a viable and often preferable alternative to resolving many business disputes and employment issues via litigation. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution in which a neutral third party is called on to assist the disputing parties in coming to terms that both can agree with on a voluntary basis. The mediator advises both sides and attempts to have the parties resolve issues without taking the matter to court.

A skilled employment mediator knows how to make suggestions and offer solutions to the complex matters that are causing the parties to refuse to settle. Having a third party is often enough of a buffer between the parties for them to resolve their differences.

Some advantages of mediating your employment or business dispute include the following:

  • Unlike going to court, mediation is private and the results are not revealed but are held confidential.
  • Mediation is often quicker than a drawn-out courtroom battle.
  • Mediation is often a more cost-effective way to solve your employment and business disputes because the parties may be able to settle in the less hostile environment of mediation rather than going to court.
  • Some terms that would not be settled in a courtroom can be agreed to by the parties and included in the resolution of the matter.

A skilled employment mediator can investigate the facts of the case and can advise you on whether mediation may be appropriate for you.
