Only Employment Law Mediations

There are too few good, knowledgeable, Employment Law mediators.

Use a mediator who specializes in Employment Law and limits his mediation practice to Employment Law cases.

Why Mediate with an Employment Law Specialist?

Mediation with a mediator well-versed in Employment Law who has actually handled cases in state and federal court on behalf of employees and employers is a must.

We mediators are asked to ‘live in the question; that is, to ask questions of the parties to get them thinking about the risks and benefits of continuing the litigation versus settlement. Charles Peckham is educated in the latest trends, the rulings of both the newest and oldest judges, and the latest case law so will ask the RIGHT questions to help get each case have the best chance at resolution.

Your mediator must know:

  • How to handle the emotions,
  • How to handle the business and tax aspects,
  • How to handle employment benefits,
  • How to handle the issues of a current employee in litigation and continued employment,
  • How to handle issues of closure and turning those into positives,
  • How to handle training, job modification, letters of reference, letters of apology and other forms of communication,
  • How to handle perceptions and aspirations versus reality,
  • How to handle shared responsibility and claims of employee performance and alleged misconduct, and
  • How to get the case resolved!

Why Mediate with a Mediator who has represented BOTH Employees and Employers?

Very often mediators in this field have either been ONLY employee-side or ONLY employer-side in litigation. An Employment-Law mediator who has tried cases on BOTH sides is a real rarity.

Charles Peckham has tried cases to verdict and judgment and has counseled BOTH Management and Employees for his entire legal career.

It is important to know that the pain and affront is felt by both employees and employers, and that real anger exists. Charles Peckham has repeatedly been able to focus on those hot-button issues the other side may not see; and to resolve them.

Your mediator must be:

Sensitive to the emotional concerns of the Employee and Management,
Educated in Mediation techniques,
Experienced in Employment Law,
Tenacious in the pursuit of resolution,
Empathetic and listen to both sides and their lawyers,
Resourceful and explore all possible solutions,
Creative and push for a win-win resolution.

Will Charles Peckham take Sides?
