Attorney Newman is a Certified Florida Supreme Court Circuit Civil Mediator, specializing in employment law disputes.
Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process where an employee and an employer discuss and choose possible solutions to resolve a dispute. It involves the help of an independent and impartial person, called a mediator, who helps the parties reach a resolution, which is acceptable to all parties involved. The mediator helps facilitate the discussion and assists the parties by providing a venue where they can confidentially discuss each other's position, listen respectfully to each other, and weigh the advantages and disadvantages and costs of litigation.
If the mediation leads to a settlement, a mediator can assist the parties in drafting the settlement agreement. If it does not lead to a settlement, the parties are free to continue mediation sessions until the dispute is resolved, or an "impasse" may be declared, at which time the parties may chose to litigate their claims in a court of law.
