New York Employment Mediation Lawyer
A form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), mediation is essentially a voluntary, formal negotiation during which the parties can come together before a neutral third party in a good faith effort to resolve their dispute and reach a settlement. While not right for every employment law claim, mediation offers many advantages. It might be the best path forward in your case. Some notable 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.
- Preserve Relationships. As the goal of mediation is to reach a settlement, the process is not directly adversarial. An advantage of this is that it can help preserve relationships between the parties. Mediation is especially useful for employees who wish to/plan to keep working with their employer after the case is resolved.
- 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.
