There are some disputes between employees that need more than just a chat and may need more formal workplace mediation.
‘Workplace Mediation is a structured process whereby an impartial mediator facilitates communication between those in dispute in order for them to come up with mutually agreed solutions on how to improve their working relationship in the future.’
Benefits of Workplace Mediation
Cheaper, more cost-effective – mediation can be completed at a fraction of the cost of an Employment Tribunal and court.
Faster – save months and years of preparing for and going through a tribunal or court case. Mediation takes 1 day and can be arranged within 14 days.
Informal – no courtrooms, tribunals or judges. Mediation is informal and less intimidating and can take place in a neutral venue of your choice.
Less damaging – mediation can help you repair and maintain pre-existing work / employment relationships so that you can continue to work alongside each other in a peaceful, constructive manner.
