Why Mediation is Better Than Litigation
Mediation, to begin with, is very different from litigation. This process involves two opposing parties coming together to talk things through under the watchful eye of a neutral mediator. This could be an attorney who has had experience trying employment law cases, or a legal expert who has seen his fair share of similar disputes. The environment is non-adversarial, and there are no judgments at the end, but a written or oral agreement which can be negotiated over and over again until both parties are satisfied.
Here are just some of the types of disputes handled by our mediation firm:
- Gender/sex discrimination
- Sexual orientation discrimination
- Nationality/racial discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Age discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Wage and hour disputes / non-payment of overtime
- Injuries sustained at work
- Maternity leave issues
- Whistleblower cases
- Wrongful termination
- Breach of employment contracts
The Benefits of Employment Mediation
One of the benefits of mediation in employment matters is confidentiality. If one or more parties prefer the matter be handled outside of the public court system, you’d do best attempting to resolve the issue(s) in an informal mediation setting. Court cases are usually archived and made available to the general public, obliterating any chance at keeping the matter private.
At the same time, mediation is flexible and can accommodate people’s different schedules, and there is no penalty should both parties fail to reach an agreement. In addition, mediation is less costly than litigation, making it a favorable option for both sides.
Mediation is ideal for employment disputes because they help maintain an amicable relationship between two parties involved, meaning that the aggrieved individual may be able to return to work should both parties agree to do so. Litigation is usually very adversarial and personal and professional relationships almost never survive the harshness of the justice system.

Mediation doesn’t only benefit the two parties that are looking for some kind of resolution; it also is good for the community since the justice system and courts won’t be backlogged with numerous cases waiting to be heard. Remember that the mediator is impartial, and he or she will not issue a final verdict. It is ultimately up to you and the other party to come to an agreement which is agreeable to all parties.
