At Blue Sky Mediation Center, our experienced Los Angeles employment mediator provides a safe and comfortable space for California employers, employees, lawyers, and other parties to create valuable and expedited solutions for their disputes.
Our Los Angeles County employment mediator, Robert P. Mougin, helps mediation participants to retain complete control over their disputes and resolutions, so they can move forward with confidence. While most employment disputes can be resolved early and quickly through mediation, our mediation specialist has over 25 years of experience managing complex cases that provide significant insight into the process. This experience allows our Blue Sky Mediation Center professionals to develop real solutions that reduce the uncertainty, expense, and risks they face in litigation.
California employment laws are inflexible and supersede their federal counterparts, which means
both the employer and the employee are held to strict daily standards that are often blurred by
each party’s perception of the applicable statutes. When mistakes are made, especially when they involve high-profile companies and/or long-term employees, the disputes can become highly emotional, which can inhibit both sides from successfully moving forward with their professional and personal lives until the conflict is settled.
Employment mediation can provide a successful platform for the participants to resolve their
disputes in the following areas:
Whether the goal is to maintain or re-establish a good working relationship, take corrective measures, change corporate policies, and operating procedures, or resolve the dispute outside of the courtroom, mediation provides private solutions for even the most complex employment matters.
The very first benefit of mediation is that it provides an opportunity for California employers to discover the real issues affecting their workplaces, and fosters a problem-solving approach to complaints, disruptions, and potential litigation before these factors leave the building. Next, the open communication that is facilitated through our Los Angeles employment law mediation sessions identifies the source of disputes that arise in the workplace over differences in culture and values, work environments, or a breakdown in communication that led to the dispute coming to the forefront of the employment relationship.
This allows the employer to:
This type of open communication may prove challenging without a mediator, or even when a solution is dictated by a judge during litigation, which makes mediation more effective when it is engaged in early. Our skilled Los Angeles employment mediator can help get you there faster, so everyone can get back to work.
We also focus on the following practice areas in Los Angeles:
If you are a California employee, few things are more daunting than taking legal action against your employer — especially if you work for a large corporation. You know they have the legal and financial resources to drag out your case for as long as they see fit. You should partner with a qualified employment lawyer to get a full understanding of all your legal rights. Even then, the legal process can be drawn out, tiresome, and expensive. Employees who participate in mediation do not waive any of their rights, nor jeopardize a more formalized, dispute resolution process in the future, such as trial. Mediation simply allows you, the employee, to help design your own solution expeditiously by resolving all the employment issues that are important to you, not just the underlying legal dispute.
Through mediation, employees can:
Our Los Angeles mediator operates as a neutral third party who examines the claims of all the participants and sets realistic expectations to help the parties correctly view and evaluate their respective cases while educating them about the potential risks and liabilities in their positions.

Los Angeles employment dispute mediators do not decide if someone is right or wrong or develop a resolution or agreement for the parties to sign before they exit the building. Mediators are trained to help parties resolve differences by listening to all sides of the conflict, clarifying questions, and assisting the parties in communicating to help them draft a mutually acceptable agreement.
Employment mediation sessions are available by the hour, in half-day sessions, or full-day sessions, depending on the employment mediation needs, which culminate in an efficient process that saves both time and money.
At Blue Sky Mediation Center, our mediation services are available in two accessible forms, and unlike other mediation centers, everything we do is included within our flat fees:
There are zero additional charges for all other work: research, teleconferences before and after mediation, administrative time, calendaring, copying, mediator’s proposals, and all follow up. Our goal is to get you to the finish line, get the dispute fully and forever resolved, and allow you to move on with your life.
The exact percentage of successful mediation cases varies by California county and complaint. However, employment mediation has an extremely high success rate and allows the parties to
negotiate their own settlement, giving them control of the entire process.
No. Whether one case is appropriate for mediation over another requires considering multiple factors, including the nature of the case, the relationship of the parties, the size and complexity of the case, and the remedy sought by the charging party.
