Despite all endeavours to solve employment problems directly between employer and employee, sometimes it just isn’t possible. Under the Employment Relations Act 2000, mediation is stated as the primary problem-solving mechanism.
Mediation is where an independent party (the mediator) helps resolve an employment relationship problem by facilitating a discussion in a semi-formal and confidential environment. A mediator will work to identify the main issues and find potential solutions, aiming for the parties to come to an agreement – noting that no party can be forced into an agreement if it chooses not to.
