New laws encourage the use of mediation in preference to going to tribunals or the courts, and results shows that disputes can be resolved within one day, without incurring costly, and stressful, legal fees and court appearances. As a result, the government, employers and the judicial system recognise mediation as one of the most efficient and cost effective ways of resolving conflicts and disputes.

does mediation work?
Mediation is seen, and commonly referred to, as an alternative means of dispute resolution (ADR), as opposed to the more recognised way of using the legal system.
Mediation is a process where both parties meet voluntarily, with the help of a neutral person known as the mediator, in order to resolve the dispute.
The mediator is present to assist both parties in their negotiations, and to arrive at, and agree a mutually acceptable resolution. It is important to recognise that the role of the mediator is not to suggest, or force, a solution onto the parties. The mediator will, at all times, develop a level of empathy and trust to encourage both parties to feel confident in both the process and the mediator.
The actual mediation is a non binding process until such time an agreement is reached and ratified by the parties, at which point it will become an enforceable contract.
One of the key benefits of a well conducted mediation, over the more recognised legal route, is to identify the underlying issues that have created the conflict and, in doing so, help to restore a peaceful existence for the parties involved.
Other recognised benefits are the speed of the dispute resolution (usually within a day), and significantly lower financial costs compared to those normally incurred using the legal route.
Finally, the mediation process is often referred to, by past clients, as being a more relaxed, and less threatening, environment than that of pursuing the case through the judicial system.
