MEDIATION, ARBITRATION AND
Arbitration and mediation are forms of alternative dispute resolution.
Arbitration is a final and binding dispute resolution mechanism where an independent arbitrator hears all sides of the dispute and then makes a binding decision.
Mediation brings two or more parties together to have a productive conversation with an ultimate goal of having the parties reach an agreement.
Med-Arb starts with mediation. If a resolution cannot be mutually agreed upon, the mediator changes their capacity to an arbitrator and proceeds to arbitration.
An investigation involves any activities required to reach a fair and impartial understanding of a particular problem or issue.
Investigations in the workplace may be required for a variety of reasons such as issues in the areas of:
- Workplace harassment
- Workplace health and safety
- Professional conduct
- Human rights, ethics or integrity
- Administrative fairness
Our trained professionals are qualified to assist organizations in ferreting out the facts around the issue or problem so the organization has the information it requires to make a decision and take action.
