Workplace Mediation and Employment Law Mediation
Mediation in workplace conflicts (in Britain called “workplace mediation”) aims at managing, at the earliest possible stage after a conflict has arisen in a workplace, using a third party, i.e. a mediator. If you deal with such a conflict at an early stage, you can increase the possibilities of avoiding sickness, burnouts and production losses, as well as in the case of suspensions, dismissal and subsequent labour disputes.
Conflicts in a workplace are, to a large extent, an working environment health issue, which the employer not only has an obligation to handle, but should reasonably have business-related incentives to handle as early and as optimally as possible.
