Assisting Through The Employment Arbitration Process
Many employment cases are resolved through a process called arbitration instead of through the court system. Arbitration is a private court system in which an individual, the arbitrator, acts as the judge.
A Calm Presence Through The Mediation Process
Employment mediation is a voluntary process in which a neutral mediator assists the employer and employee to discuss their dispute and finally come to a mutually agreed upon decision. Mediation can occur before or after a suit is filed.
Unlike an arbitrator, a mediator does not have decision-making power. Therefore, if the parties reach a settlement, it must be put in the form of a written contract that is enforceable in court. While the parties themselves usually have complete control of the outcome in mediation, it is advisable to have the aid of attorneys present to look after your interests.
