What Are Mediation And Arbitration?
Mediation and arbitration are two alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods that can be effective alternatives to litigation:
- Mediation: In mediation, disputing parties work together with a third-party neutral mediator to come to an agreement on the disputed issue.
- Arbitration: In arbitration, an independent third-party arbitrator makes a binding decision on the disputed issue.
What Are The Benefits Of Mediation And Arbitration?
There are many reasons why an individual may want to consider ADR options — and avoid litigation:
- Cost: Mediation and arbitration are typically more cost-effective means of resolving a dispute than litigation.
- Time: Mediation and arbitration can be faster, more streamlined ways to resolve a dispute.
- Collaboration: Both mediation and arbitration allow parties to work together collaboratively toward a resolution.
Mediation or arbitration can be an effective means to resolve a variety of employment-related disputes:
- Discrimination and harassment claims
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) issues
- Wrongful termination
- Wage and hour/overtime violations
Every case is different. It is important to discuss your specific options with an attorney. This can help you identify the most effective means of resolving your dispute.
