Employment law is another area that benefits from mediation

Most Scottsdale residents would cringe at the thought of having to go to court. Not only is it a daunting experience, but it is also time-consuming and expensive. For this reason, mediation is an attractive alternative for resolving any number of disputes, including those in the area of employment law.

In fact, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission offers a mediation service that could bring a resolution to employment disputes between Scottsdale employers and their employees. This alternative to litigation provides a neutral party to help facilitate a resolution to the issues between the parties. This could result in not only a monetary resolution, but a nonmonetary one as well. For instance, a party may receive the promotion he or she was denied due to discrimination by a supervisor or manager, along with monetary compensation for any pay disparity that occurred.

Mediation often provides the parties with a better result than litigation would. The results in court often seem to be more one-sided. Outside the courtroom, an agreement can be reached that includes input from both parties, which often results in a more satisfactory end to the dispute. Moreover, parties who negotiate and create their own agreement tend to follow through with its provisions since they had greater control over the outcome.

While mediation may involve a neutral third party, that person does not represent anyone. That person's function is not to protect your rights, but to facilitate negotiations and keep the parties on track. In order to ensure that an individual's rights are protected, it would be a good idea to involve an attorney in the process.
