It is a truism of employment law that most cases settle at the mediation stage. Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process used to resolve numerous types of employment disputes, such as wrongful dismissal claims.  

When mediation happens, the difference between a successful and unsuccessful mediation comes down to the parties’ preparation. Being properly prepared, understanding the importance of flexibility and creativity, and taking advantage of the opportunity to settle are all important tips for a successful mediation.


Often, the failure to properly prepare is the reason for an unsuccessful mediation.   

Many cases can be resolved through alternative dispute resolution methods – such as mediation – avoiding the costly, time-consuming, and stressful litigation process.
