Employment Matters that Can be Brought to Mediation

While employment cases that go to trial get a lot of press coverage, many cases that involve employment disputes are settled privately through mediation without the need for costly litigation.

If you find yourself locked in a disagreement with your employer over an issue that arises in the workplace, do not hesitate to look into the alternative dispute resolution form of mediation. An attorney skilled in employment mediation would be happy to advise you on whether it may be the right choice for you.

Some employment disputes that can go to mediation include the following:

  • Break time issues
  • Employment contracts and benefits
  • Severance
  • Non-compete and confidentiality issues
  • Payment of commissions
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act protections
  • Affirmative action
  • Americans with Disabilities Act protections
  • Disclosure and privacy issues
  • Discrimination in hiring
  • Sexual harassment
  • Safety and health issues
  • Disability benefits
  • Discrimination or harassment based on age, race, sex, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation
  • Public sector requirements of due process
  • Fair Labor Standards Act issues on minimum wage, overtime pay, and employment of minors
  • Family Medical Leave Act protections
  • Occupational Health and Safety Administration complaints
  • Protections against retaliation
  • Qui tam and whistleblowing protections
  • Terms and conditions of employment
  • The taking of vacation or other leave policies
  • Discrimination in the workplace

The foregoing represents only some of the areas that can be the subject of employment mediation. Speak to an arbitration attorney about your employment issue and whether it might be appropriate for mediation or arbitration.
