Mediation is a process whereby 2 or more parties are helped to resolve an argument or dispute. It can be helpful in workplace disputes. 

To help you understand the benefits of mediation it is best to get advice from an employment adviser at Citizens Advice or Law Centre, for example.  

Where this is not possible, we may be able to direct you to an organisation/lawyer that provides one off legal advice. This can be before or during the mediation so you can have a better understanding of your legal position. 

Sometimes it is helpful to have an independent third party, who is impartial, to help both parties find a way forward. The mediator can help the parties to communicate with each other and to find a solution. 

A grievance rarely resolves matters.  The employer may feel ‘attacked’ and so be defensive. This may involve blaming the employee for what has happened.  An employer rarely admits to having done anything wrong particularly if that could involve them admitting a breach of the law.

Mediation is where the parties meet online with a mediator. The mediator helps the parties to have a discussion. ACAS’ role is very limited. They do not read any documents and act more as a go-between.

You may want “justice” in a Tribunal BUT there is never any guarantee that you will win, however strong you feel your case is. 

Going to a Tribunal can be stressful, time consuming, costly and often damaging to the parties’ reputation as judgments are available on a public register.

Yes, you can take a friend and the mediator can help ensure that one party is not taking advantage of the other or forcing you into something you do not want. You can leave the mediation at any time if you are concerned about your employer’s behaviour.  

You must be living/working in London.

The first six hours of mediation is provided at no cost.
