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 an unfair dismissal redundancy, employees can take their matter to the Employment Tribunal.
However, by arranging a mediation session, it is common for both employee and employer to come to an agreement without the issue having to reach the courts.
This saves both parties time, money and unnecessary emotional distress.

Workplace Mediation Case Study
Marjorie worked for her employer for over 2 years before she went on maternity leave. When she returned to work a year later. Within a short period of time her employer notified her that there was no longer a job available for her and that she was being made redundant.
Marjorie decided that she would take the matter up with the Employment Tribunal. Marjorie went to see a Mediator to negotiate between her and her employer, which is the process required before making an application to the Employment Tribunal.
After a couple of mediation sessions an agreement was reached in which the employer accepted that Marjorie was entitled to her job back and compensated her for the distress and inconvenience caused by the thought of losing her job.
Since the matter had been resolved through mediation there was no longer a need for the matter to go before an Employment Tribunal.
