When a former or current employee feels they’ve been wrongfully terminated, sexually harassed, or mistreated in any way, legalistic mediation is notoriously dissatisfying for them and extremely ineffective at settling the case. Transformative Mediation, however, allows for the real conversation to occur. Misunderstandings are cleared up, demonization is diminished, and settlements are reached that satisfy both the employee and the employer. Many employers choose to offer Transformative Mediation to employees at the first sign of litigation—the employer avoids paying fees to outside counsel, and the employee appreciates the good faith and rapid responsiveness demonstrated by the employer. Plaintiffs’ attorneys appreciate how quickly the case can be resolved, often without the costs and delays of formal discovery.
