Mediation is an out of court and non-adversarial approach to resolving disputes between parties. The mediator is a neutral, third-party and assists parties to reach an agreement by facilitating discussions around the issues, barriers and other interests that are relevant in order to agree on an outcome and plan moving into the future.
In some circumstances, mediation maybe ordered by the courts or required by the tribunal, however, mediation can also occur prior to, or after court or tribunal proceedings have commenced. The mediation process allows a collaborative approach to resolving disputes, whilst being guided to reach an agreement that both parties are satisfied with.
If an agreement is not achieved during mediation, the process is "without prejudice". Meaning that the agreements proposed during mediation will not influence subsequent court / tribunal proceedings.
BENEFITS OF MEDIATION
a) Preserve Relationships: By utilising a more collaborative approach to dispute resolution, familial, business, employee and relationships are more likely to remain on friendly terms.
b) Maintain Control: Mediation allows input from both parties as to their perspectives and desired outcome of a dispute. This is unlike when a matter proceeds to court and the judge's decision in final.
c) Decreased Costs: Mediation is significantly less costly than those associated with commencing proceedings / litigation.
d) Save Time: Mediation itself usually only takes one day after the mediation conference date is set, with the whole process from initial consultations, only taking 1-3 weeks, unlike court proceedings which can take several months or years.
e) Reduce Stress: The non-adversarial and less formal nature of mediation allows parties to reach an agreement and engaged in collaborative discussions, reducing the emotional toll often experienced by parties to a matter in court proceedings.
MEDIATION FOR EMPLOYMENT DISPUTES
Disputes in the workplace can arise due to various factors, and mediation is able to be utilised in order to resolve dispute such as:
- Employee grievances - Workplace conflict, and - Contractual disputes
Most employment related disputes can be mediated with parties reaching an agreement. By engaging this service in an employment related dispute, relationships are preserved within the business, creating a healthier company culture.
Generally, it is best that the dispute is resolved within the workplace, either by escalating the matter to senior management or human resources, dependent on the structure of the business, aiming for the dispute to be resolved though a discussion between the relevant parties.
However, there are instances where this "in-house" process does not always result in the resolution of a dispute. In this instances, it is generally advised that the dispute is resolved outside of the workplace.
This is where mediation conferences can be engaged. In some circumstances, an employee contract may stipulate that mediation is to be undertaken by the relevant parties where a disputes within the workplace arises without the need for further escalation by the affected parties.
At Essia Law, we have a team of expert and nationally accredited mediators which can work with you to resolve your dispute in a time and cost-effective manner, to reach an agreement and avoid costly litigation.
