Are you looking to resolve a workplace dispute? While litigation is effective and can help you achieve the desired outcome, battling your case in court can be costly, time-consuming, and emotionally draining. The good news is that there are other alternatives to litigation. Mediation is a great way to resolve an employment matter quickly and efficiently. Below are some reasons why you may want to choose mediation rather than taking matters to court.
Mediation increases the control that parties have over the resolution. Both parties are directly involved in negotiating their own agreement. No resolution can be imposed upon you.
Because mediation can be used early in a dispute, an agreement can usually be reached quicker than if pursued through the court system.
Mediation costs less time, money, and emotional stress. Lawsuits are not only lengthy and expensive, but the uncertainty of a judicial outcome can take a toll on everyone’s mental wellbeing.
The mediation is arranged at a venue convenient to all parties. Separate rooms can be arranged for the parties as well as having joint meetings should the parties desire to meet together. The Mediator listens to everyone’s view, does not reveal confidential information, talks to the parties privately and helps guide the parties toward a settlement.
Preservation of Relationships
Preservation of relationships is a key benefit of mediation. Mediation helps participants focus on effectively sharing their thoughts, views, feelings, and information. This can lead to a better understanding of issues affecting the relationship.
