Not sure how to resolve a conflict in the workplace?

Consulting a mediator for work-related disputes can help to resolve conflicts without having to go through a lengthier and more tiring processes.

For example, when facing unfair dismissal, employees can take their matter to the Employment Tribunal.


However, a mediator can help you arrive at an amicable outcome with your employer without the matter going to an employment tribunal.

This saves both parties time, money and unnecessary emotional distress.

If you are concerned that you may lose your job, take the fear and stress out of challenging unfair treatment at work, or, facing a disciplinary hearing by seeking mediation.

“Everyone was against me, it felt like I was going mad.
Thank you so much for helping me get back on my feet. I feel like a big weight has been taken off me.”

‘I’ve worked here for over 15 years and I couldn’t believe it had come to this. A new manager had it in for me and no-one was listening. Your mediation service helped me to get my points across. I now have some new working conditions that makes working here a pleasure again. Thank you.’

‘Thanks for all your help. I had almost lost hope they would ever pay me. I couldn’t have done it without you.’

Example Work Mediation Case Study

Background

Marjorie worked for a chain of hotels making sure that the kitchens and restaurants were cleaned at the end of each day. She notified the owner that she had evidence there were rodents on the premises. Two weeks later Marjorie notified her employer that she was unable to enter two of the premises because the number of rodents had increased making it impossible for her to do her job. A few days later Marjorie's employment was terminated and she was not paid any wages for that month despite her calls to HR.

Action

Marjorie decided to seek some help, as she had no idea what to do. A friend told her she should take them to an employment tribunal. Marjorie was beginning to feel overwhelmed with the information she found online about the law, finding a representative, the costs and the length of time this would take, as she had now fallen behind with the rent and her time was taken up looking for a new job.

Support

By chance she found some information about mediation and decided to seek out her local mediator. The mediator explained both the tribunal process and the mediation process. Marjorie wanted this sorted out as soon as possible to keep her costs low, so asked the mediator to speak with her employer.

Conclusion

Since the matter had been resolved through mediation there was no longer a need for the matter to go before an Employment Tribunal.

The mediator got the employer to engage with the mediation process that enabled Marjorie's wages to be paid in full.
