Training Your Staff for Mediation

Lunch & Learn Webinars

Training Your Staff To Participate Effectively in Commercial and Employee Mediation

Speakers: Shaun JardineAmy Edwards and Ben Foley

Believe it or not, court based commercial litigation mediation is now more than 10 years old! It was introduced in April 2008, when the County Court created an in-house Small Claims Mediation Service which encouraged parties to participate in the Mediation process rather than proceeding to trial.

HR professionals and employers will know that mediation for employment related matters via ACAS has been around for even longer.

With litigation now more expensive and onerous than ever, parties need to be in the know and consider whether early resolution would be more commercially and cost effective; it usually is.

Knowing how both commercial and employment mediation works and the powers that those conducting the mediation have, can result in far better outcomes.
