Workplace Disputes: Mediation at Work

Workplace disputes can arise for a variety of reasons but they are always disruptive to business and have the potential to be very damaging.

Workplace disputes between employees and employers can occur for many reasons, including:

  • Pay and working conditions
  • Changes to terms and conditions
  • Restructuring and transfer of employment
  • Alternative dispute resolution

Our employment solicitors will help you to understand and negotiate the framework in which workplace disputes are conducted, for example via collective bargaining, the internal grievance procedure or through any other dispute resolution mechanisms (e.g. mediation at workplace) that may be unique to your organisation. We will help you to identify a target outcome and explore with you the steps that will be necessary to get there.

We will ensure that you are fully apprised of the strength of your legal position and, based on this understanding, that you are aware of the approaches you can take in the negotiations and the risks and benefits associated with each option. We will also advise you of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, such as workplace mediation, and, where appropriate, will support and advise you through these procedures.
