Employment and Workplace

Click here to read about how to set up a workplace mediation.

Many of Core’s mediations and facilitations involve employment and other workplace-related disputes.

Research shows that the cost and impact of disputes at work can be radically reduced if the dispute is mediated in the early stages. Mediation allows employers and employees, managers and teams, to address difficult situations speedily and constructively. Often, creative outcomes are achieved, with a restoration of working relationships or some other solution to help parties to move forward and achieve closure and certainty.

Many workplace mediations have arisen out of grievance, disciplinary and complaints procedures and have resulted in resolution of difficult situations which otherwise would have been dealt with in the Employment Tribunal or in court.
