Employment Dispute Resolution

ADR Resume >>

Mediation of Employment Litigation

  • Mediation is a facilitated dialogue between disputants, their representatives, and a mediator for the purpose of achieving a binding settlement. The mediator's role is to assist disputants to explore issues, needs, and settlement options.

  • Mediation works. Statistics show that 85% of employment and commercial matters conclude in written settlements. The advantage of mediation over litigation is privacy, informality, reduced legal cost, creativity of settlement terms, and interest-based solutions developed by the parties.

Arbitration of Employment Litigation

  • Arbitration is an adjudicative process in which disputing parties empower an Arbitrator to issue a final and binding award based on evidence submitted in a hearing. Employment arbitration involves statutory, policy and “for cause” disciplinary matters not involving collective bargaining Agreements.

  • The advantage of arbitration over litigation is privacy, informality, reduced legal cost, time to resolution, and resolution by a subject-matter expert in the field of the dispute.
