Employment Law Mediation in New Jersey

Employment law disputes are highly contentious and involve complex legal issues.  Mediation sessions provide the parties with a viable alternative to moving forward with litigation.  

What is Employment Law Mediation?

Employment mediations are informal private or court-ordered sessions to assist the parties in an employment dispute to reach an amicable resolution. The mediator does not decide on any legal issues or make any rulings on who is right and who is wrong.  The mediator’s role is a simple one – to help the parties settle their employment dispute.   

When Does the Need for Employment Mediation Arise?

The need for employment mediation arises whenever there is a dispute between the parties.  The mediation sessions typically take place shortly after the filing of a lawsuit.  However, mediation sessions may also take place prior to the filing of a lawsuit.  

Ideally, the mediation session occurs before the parties have spent a significant amount of time and money on the dispute at issue.

There are many benefits to utilizing mediation services for an employment law dispute.  First and foremost, it is a cost-effective way to resolve the dispute.  In addition, it gives the parties an opportunity to tell their side of the dispute and find closure in a confidential setting. Furthermore, mediation services often present the parties with their best opportunity to fashion a settlement that achieves their goals.
