Benefits of Mediation
Confidential. Mediation is a confidential process. This means that mediators cannot disclose any information revealed during the mediation. The sessions are not recorded or transcribed in any way and, at the conclusion of the mediation, any notes are destroyed.
Informal. The mediation process is an informal process conducted by a mediator (not a judge) in an informal setting (typically a conference room). There are no rules of evidence and no need for witnesses.
Quick and Cost Effective. Filing a lawsuit and going to trial can take years. Mediation allows for a quicker and more cost-effective resolution than litigation.
Greater Control. Parties who negotiate their own settlements at mediation have total control over the outcome of the dispute. Parties have an equal say in the process and may be able to reach a mutually-beneficial resolution to their conflict. As a result, the parties are generally more satisfied with the outcome, as opposed to a decision imposed by a judge.
Preserves Relationships. Many disputes occur in the context of employment relationships. Mediation is a more amicable process and better at preserving business relationships than litigation, since litigation is typically a process where one party wins and one party loses.
Comprehensive and Customized Agreements. Mediated agreements are great at resolving unique issues, since the parties can tailor their settlement to their particular situation.
