How to Master Workplace and Employment Mediation

By Clive Lewis

Mediation in the workplace is growing in popularity as a dispute resolution option for UK organizations. The management of conflict at work is not easy and this is partly due to there being few practical tools to help. The formal processes designed to deal with workplace disputes, including grievance procedures, and employment tribunals are as much a part of the problem as they are the solution. The UK has a history of relying on an ever-increasing array of statutory rights to protect employees from mistreatment, however statutory machinery can be a major distraction to identifying and dealing with underlying employee and industrial relations issues. The compelling business case for productive workplace relationships is helping organizations to realize that there is a real need to focus on behaviors that will lead to solutions rather than financial compensation. How to Master Workplace and Employment Mediation is a best practice guide that unearths all the myths surrounding mediation and outlines how it can add value to the employment relationship. The book deals with aspects of both workplace (ongoing working relationship) and employment (post-employment relationship) mediation. [Subject: Mediation, Employment Law, Company Law]
