Employment Mediation

At the point of termination emotions and liability can run high; employment mediation can help cool emotions and reduce liability. Most legal claims against employers happen after the employment relationship ends. The terminated employee often feels like they have few options. Employment mediation can help both parties reach a confidential settlement that leave both sides better off than had they litigated.

How Can Employment Mediation Help?

The reality is, in Ontario, most claims against employers happen after an employee stops working for the employer. People complain as they leave, creating a risk to the employer's business. Employment Mediation offers a confidential and risk free option for exploring ways to part company peacefully.

Mediation leaves the control with the people in the dispute and adds a neutral mediator to help both parties keep talking. Since any party has the right to leave the mediation or agree or disagree with any proposal made, mediation offers significant chance of benefit without any increase in risk.
