Wrongful Termination Mediator in Las Vegas, Nevada

In the workforce there are many reasons as to why you could be fired. Sometimes it’s budget cuts, you might not have been performing well, or other completely legal reasons for being laid off. In some cases, you may be terminated from your job without warning. Is this considered wrongful termination?

Wrongful termination is based on whether or not state or federal laws were violated. Even if you think the termination was unfair, that does not necessarily make it wrongful. Wrongful termination mediation is a process where the employer and the terminated employee attempt to resolve disputes with help from a neutral third-party mediator. They will discuss the termination with the goal of reaching a mutually acceptable resolution outside of court without the need for litigation. Here are some examples of wrongful termination in Las Vegas, Nevada:

  • This refers to termination based on race, gender, age, religion, disability, nationality, or other protected characteristics.
  • If an employer fires an employee in retaliation for exercising their legal rights, such as filing a complaint about workplace harassment or filing a workers’ compensation claim, it constitutes wrongful termination.
  • Violation of public policy. Firing an employee for refusing to engage in illegal activities or for reporting illegal or unethical behavior is considered wrongful termination.
  • Constructive discharge. Sometimes, an employer creates such intolerable working conditions that the employee feels compelled to resign. In such cases, it may be considered constructive discharge, which is a form of wrongful termination.

Wrongful Termination Law in Las Vegas

How Does Wrongful Termination Mediation Work in Las Vegas?

During mediation, both parties, along with their lawyers (if they choose to hire them) meet with a trained mediator who facilitates communication and negotiation. The mediator helps identify areas of disagreement and guides the parties toward finding a resolution that is acceptable to both sides. What can mediation address in a wrongful termination case? Mediation can address various issues related to the termination, including but not limited to alleged violations of employment contracts, discrimination, retaliation, harassment, or violations of labor laws.

Is wrongful termination mediation legally binding?

The outcome of mediation is generally not legally binding unless both parties agree to a settlement that includes legally enforceable terms. Once both parties sign a settlement agreement, it becomes a legally binding contract. Mediation can become legally binding and make sure to discuss this with your mediator ahead of time.

What Should I Do If I Believe I Have Been Wrongfully Terminated in Las Vegas?

Employees who believe they have been wrongfully terminated may file a lawsuit against their employer seeking damages, reinstatement, or other remedies available under the law. However, lawsuits can be expensive and time-consuming. When there is a conflict between parties in the workplace, it may be in everyone’s best interest to go through the mediation process instead of taking the matter to court. In mediation, a neutral party facilitates communication to help everyone come to a mutually beneficial resolution. When dealing with employment disputes, mediation is a method generally preferred by both the company and the employee.

How long does wrongful termination mediation take?

The duration of mediation can vary depending on the complexity of the issues involved and the willingness of both parties to negotiate. Mediations may be resolved in a single session, while others may require multiple sessions over several weeks or months.

What If Mediation Doesn’t Work?

If you and the other party partake in mediation and still can’t come to a resolution you may need to file a claim. Mediation is only successful if both parties agree and reach a settlement. Mediation can be a very powerful tool and can be very effective for many parties. It is still an avenue worth pursuing and can help the litigation process as you will know what the other party is after.
