How Can Mediation Help You?
Mediation, a type of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is an effective solution to employment law disputes. Unlike traditional litigation, which is costly, stressful and public, mediation is less expensive, more relaxed and remains private. Maintaining a company’s or individual’s privacy is often a very important reason to choose mediation.
The mediator serves as a neutral third party who helps facilitate discussion and negotiation between the two sides. Each party may have a lawyer represent them in mediation, but it is not required. Some mediation sessions last for just a half day or full day, while others may need more sessions if the parties are having trouble agreeing on the issues.
The types of employment law mediation attorney Beck provides include issues that involve:
- Federal employees and private sector employees
- Discrimination in the workplace, such as disability, age, race, national origin, sex, gender, pregnancy and religion
- Sexual harassment and hostile work environment
- Wage and hour claims
You can trust Warren Beck’s extensive experience as an employment law attorney when you choose him as a mediator. Having also represented people in mediation, he understands the concerns that each party has.
You Can Take Control of Your Employment Law Matter
Going to trial is intimidating, but going to mediation is not. You can choose to be in different rooms if you wish, and the mediator will go back and forth between them, so you don’t have to come face-to-face with the other party.
