Our employment lawyers mediate all types of employment law claims, from wrongful dismissal cases, to human rights actions, to occupational health and safety complaints.
Win or lose, we understand that litigation for most of our employer clients is a matter of economics – they want to resolve the issue with as little expense as possible. Not all cases, even ones with the most merit, ought to go through the time and expense of a full trial.
The fact is that most workplace disputes can be resolved without the need for litigation, which tends to be more costly, time-consuming, and public.
This is true whether the issue is harassment, dismissal or a dispute over the amount of severance an employee is entitled to receive. In addition to helping you devise a strategy for dealing with any type of employee dispute, our employment lawyers are highly adept at presenting your position during mediation and negotiating solutions to difficult issues.
For many cases, mediation is not an option, but a necessity; in Ontario, cases in Toronto, Ottawa, and Windsor are subject to mandatory mediation.
