Mediation

Through our mediation process, we can help resolve workplace disputes quickly and effectively before they get out of hand.

With workplace mediation both parties are in a win-win situation, therefore working relationships are preserved. Both parties are in control of and take ownership of any agreement reached.

STEWART and BAKER Limited has several years sound experience of dispute resolution and Employment Relations from working as full-time Trade Union officials, supervisors, managers and training and development officers. With this wide-ranging and varied background we are confident that we are capable of dealing with any circumstance where mediation is applicable.

By using STEWART and BAKER as your mediators you would, whenever possible, get your own dedicated mediator to deal with all your cases, giving you confidence that your clients are receiving a consistent and reliable service.

Our Mediation service is a highly cost-effective way of resolving a wide range of disputes. Mediation is being used more and more for addressing conflicts not only in the workplace but also within and between communities, within the public services sector and between private individuals.

Mediation is currently being vigorously promoted as the way forward by ACAS and various government agencies.

There are very few disputes that are not suited to using the Mediation process as a means to achieving an agreed settlement.

The time taken for a mediation to be concluded varies from case to case therefore no set time limits are applied. Usually a mediation case consists of individual fact finding meetings, which would take about a day to complete.

Joint face-to-face sessions (if appropriate) take half a day each, and then any follow up work would take about another half day, so a typical dispute could be concluded in 2-3 days.

Save time, money and relationships by using Mediation as a way of resolving disputes.

Our OCN-accredited mediators can help you achieve fast resolution of any conflict without having to wait for court dates or working through long-winded procedures.

Mediation avoids possibly adverse or damaging publicity it also gives the opportunity to come up with individual solutions beyond those that a court could ordinarily impose.

By using mediation, solicitors and court officials can free up their time to concentrate on cases that have no option but to be tried in court.

The more informal nature of mediation means that it can be a less aggressive process, which can lead to a win – win situation for opposing parties in a dispute and the maintenance of relationships.

With mediation the opposing parties have much more control over the outcome. They can fashion their own agreements and are not bound by precedents or points of law.

Using mediation does not affect either party’s right to still take the matter in dispute to court if no agreement can be made. Mediation is without prejudice.

The content of a mediation always remains totally confidential during both individual and joint meetings.
