WHY USE MEDIATION?
Mediation of workplace issues is speedier and less costly than traditional internal and legal processes.
Importantly, mediation allows you to be in control of the decisions that matter to you. You do not concede your interests to others. You remain in charge.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDIATION, ARBITRATION, A HEARING OR A TRIAL?
The key difference is that Mediation Resolves does not evaluate the strength or weakness of one party's case against another. We believe that mediation is designed to be neutral -- to find the shared interests among participants -- not to declare winners and losers.
Very importantly, mediation allows you to be in control of your own decisions. During mediation you decide what is best for you. You gain the autonomy to be in charge, perhaps for the first time during your search for resolution.
Conversely, arbitrators, judges and juries evaluate the legal aspects of each party's case and then pass judgment -- usually finding in favor of one party and against the other.
Mediation Resolves does not represent one party over the other. We represent a process.
Our mediations focus on common ground and create a framework for removing any unrelated noise. Our goal is a mutually agreeable solution.
