Who Is Mediation For?
Mediation settlements can incorporate settlement terms that would not be available within the traditional adversarial arbitration process.
Mediation can decrease the financial cost of dispute resolution and lessen its emotional impact. Therefore, mediation can be particularly helpful and empowering for participants involved in emotionally-charged circumstances such as workplace accommodation, discrimination, harassment (particularly sexual harassment) or trauma.
