Experienced Employment Mediators in Las Vegas. Nevada

Most people do not find the workplace enjoyable. The customers may be rude, and the job may be boring, but there may be other factors causing discontent at work that are illegal. An employee may be sexually harassed or discriminated against for various reasons. Maybe they are not getting paid for all the hours they have worked. Or perhaps they got fired for illegal reasons.

These issues may cause a person to file a lawsuit or claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The agency can deal with harassment and discrimination cases. You can file a formal charge of employment discrimination, which allows you the opportunity to discuss your concerns with an EEOC staff member. However, the EEOC cannot handle all employment cases. You may have to file a lawsuit with a lawyer to get results.

But before you do, you may want to consider mediating your case. Employment mediation is a process used to resolve disputes and conflicts that arise in the workplace. It involves a mediator, who serves as a neutral third party to facilitate communication and negotiation between the parties involved in the dispute. The goal of employment mediation is to reach a mutually acceptable resolution without the need for formal legal proceedings or litigation.

The Process of Employment Mediation in Las Vegas. Nevada

If you are interested in mediation, here’s a look at how the process typically works:

  • The mediation process may be initiated by the employee or their employer. Often, before entering into mediation, the parties will have attempted to resolve the issue through informal discussions or internal processes.
  • Selection of a mediator. Once both parties agree to mediation, they typically select a mediator together. The ideal mediator is impartial, trained in mediation techniques, and has knowledge of employment laws like Blue Sky Mediation Center.
  • Before the mediation session, the mediator may meet separately with each party to understand their perspective on the dispute and to clarify any issues.
  • Mediation session. During the mediation session, the mediator facilitates a structured discussion between the parties. Each party has the opportunity to express their concerns, interests, and proposed solutions. The mediator helps the parties explore options and work towards a resolution. Mediation typically takes 3-4 hours, although the session can be longer or shorter, depending on the case.
  • Negotiation and agreement. Through negotiation and dialogue facilitated by the mediator, the parties work towards reaching a mutually acceptable agreement. The agreement may involve actions such as changes in workplace policies or financial compensation.
  • Once an agreement is reached, the terms are typically documented in writing and signed by both parties. This document serves as a binding contract. Without any documentation, the mediation resolution is not legally binding.

What to Know About Employment Mediation

Employment mediation offers several advantages over formal legal proceedings, including confidentiality, cost-effectiveness, and the preservation of ongoing relationships between employees and employers. It empowers the parties to actively participate in finding a solution that meets their needs and interests. Mediation can also:

  • Avoid the significant expense and delay of litigation.
  • Keep the dispute and the parties’ settlement confidential,
  • Allow the parties to vent and tell their side of the story.
  • Engage in creative problem-solving and adopt solutions that a judge or jury would not adopt.

Mediation is usually very efficient, resolving issues in just a few hours. However, mediation does not fix every situation. If mediation fails to resolve the dispute, the parties may still pursue other legal avenues for resolution, such as arbitration or litigation.
