We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather a tailored strategy to meet your needs and objectives.
Please note that statutory timeframes do exist in the employment context – do not delay seeking advice as this may impact your ability to address your dispute
Despite all endeavours to solve employment problems directly between employer and employee, sometimes it just isn’t possible. Under the Employment Relations Act 2000 the primary problem-solving mechanism is stated as mediation.
At BuckettLaw, our experienced employment lawyers provide caring guidance and support through the mediation process. We understand that going through mediation can be an emotionally charged experience, and it is our aim to alleviate some of the stress and give you the confidence to address your dispute.
Our team has extensive expertise in mediation and alternative dispute resolution. We take the time to understand your key issues and objectives so we can develop a tailored strategy to achieve the best possible outcome for you. This may involve negotiating an exit package, securing a change in employment terms, or obtaining acknowledgment of failures.
Whatever your goals, our team will work tirelessly to reach a resolution that you are satisfied with. We are on your side every step of the way, providing advice and advocacy to overcome obstacles and secure fair results.
Some of the ways we can assist in mediation include:
Helping you prepare evidence to support your position
Advising you on the strengths and weaknesses of your case
Discussing negotiation strategies and advising on reasonable settlement options
Accompanying you to mediation and advocating on your behalf
Negotiating with the mediator and other party to achieve your desired outcome
Reviewing any settlement agreements to ensure your interests are protected
We believe that with the right preparation and support, mediation has the potential to reach positive outcomes for our clients. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, we are also able to advise you on other options to resolve your employment dispute, including issuing legal proceedings in the Employment Relations Authority.
