Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process that is a voluntary, confidential and efficient method to help parties resolve disputes through a mutual agreement. Mediators are specially trained to resolve equal employment opportunity complaints and use a variety of techniques to open communication between the parties to a case.
All parties to the case should attend the mediation session. Parties and /or representatives should be familiar with the facts of the case and have the authority to settle the case.
Although you do not have to bring an attorney with you to the mediation, either party may choose to do so. The mediator will decide what role the attorney will play during the mediation.
All information and documentation obtained during mediation are confidential. Mediation places teh ability to choose a resolution in the hands of the parties involved instead of being at the mercy of the court or paying the high fees of a lawyer. Mediation in more affordable than hiring a lawyer for court, usually can resolve your dispute much faster than the court system, and is a resolution agreed upon those involved in the dispute allowing you to save money, time, and be part of the solution instead of just standing by to hear the results. There is no winner or loser in mediation becasue the parties work together to come up with a resolution that can be agreed on by all of those involved.
