Dispute in the workplace can be exceptionally disruptive and damaging not just to the parties involved but the company as a whole. Almost all Workplace mediations require repairing professional relationships. Critical to resolving effectively disputes of this nature is the ability to see things from both parties perspectives appreciating their respective challenges in the workplace. It is also vital to understand and distinguish between their legal rights on the one hand and their best interests on the other. The skilled mediator will then be able to pull these separate strands together.
