Mediations and Arbitration
Litigation is highly effective, but the process can be more difficult than some people expect. Fortunately, mediation and arbitration are alternatives to litigation that offer many tangible benefits. With two certified mediators on staff, Ricotta & Marks, P.C., provides mediation services to clients throughout the New York City area.
The benefits of mediation include:
- Faster resolutions. Courts are busy, which means it can take months just to get a court date. Mediation can be completed in less time, and clients receive settlements sooner.
- Confidentiality. Litigation is public. If you go to court, potential employers may discover that you sued a previous employer, making it difficult for you to find work. Mediation, on the other hand, is confidential. By choosing mediation, you can protect your career.
- Reduced risk. In court, the final decision is up to a judge. You could win or walk away with nothing. Mediation allows you and your employer to work out an agreement that will be beneficial to both sides, leading to a more favorable result.

Sometimes these “Jekyll and Hyde” switches occur because a superior learned something about a subordinate that then caused him or her to have a negative bias, like the employee was of a certain religion or sexual orientation. Sometimes the reason is more obvious, like a bias against people of a certain race, being male or female, a woman becoming pregnant or people with disabilities.
