Employment Disputes

This form of employment dispute resolution can be used at any stage of a disagreement, but is used most effectively before a working relationship has excessively deteriorated. The purpose of mediation talks is to find a mutually beneficial solution, ideally restoring positive working relationships and operational efficiency.

Employment disputes can be used to resolve a variety of topics, for example:

  • Relationship breakdowns
  • Personality clashes
  • Communication issues
  • Perceived bullying or harassment
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Contractual or pay disputes


Dodds mediators have the expertise and skill to navigate through a variety of complex issues during employment mediation. If you are interested in resolving employment disputes in Leicester without the cost and stress involved in litigation, get in touch to see how we can help you.

What is Employment Mediation?

Employment mediation is a voluntary process in which a professional mediator helps two or more disputing parties in a workplace resolve their problems through constructive discussions.

The talks encourage openness and are confidential, allowing feelings, options and solutions to be discussed freely, all whilst being facilitated by a neutral and objective mediator.

When would you use Employment Mediation?

Employment mediation can be used to help settle a range of work-related issues at any level of an organisation’s hierarchy.

The process should be used after informal talks have been attempted but before relationships become embittered and potentially unsalvageable. Examples of workplace issues which could benefit from mediation discussions include:

  • Relationship breakdowns
  • Communication issues
  • Perceived harassment or bullying
  • Issues resulting from personality clashes
  • Pay or contractual disputes
  • Unfair dismissal
    What can you expect at the Employment Mediation?

    You can expect an employment mediation session to be an open environment where you can express your feelings and issues regarding a workplace problem.

    The session will be kept in order by an impartial, independent professional mediator who will guide the discussions and try to help you come to a mutually beneficial solution. Mediation is entirely voluntary and relies upon both/all parties being open to discussions and compromise.

    Why Mediate instead of Litigate?

    Mediation is a positive way to overcome workplace problems, encouraging understanding, productivity and compromise to resolve issues. If you reach a resolution, it will be one that you have contributed and agreed to, rather than one which is forced upon you by a court.

    Litigation is sometimes the right course of action, but should be used as a last resort if discussions haven’t been successful. Litigation can be a long and difficult process which often comes with high costs too, both financial and emotional.

    What outcomes can you expect from Employment Mediation?

    In the best case scenario, all parties will come to a mutually agreed solution to the problem which has been brought forth which will allow working relationships to be restored.

    Everyone will have had a chance to be heard and there will be an improved understanding between parties going forward. The outcomes of employment mediation do, however, greatly depend on the openness and willing of the parties involved to reach a solution.

    Generally, employment mediation aims to improve or restore working relationships and, as a result, improve employee satisfaction and the effectiveness of an organisation.

    What are the main advantages of Employment Mediation?
        • Employment mediation has many benefits, including:

          • Allows issues to be talked through freely, thoroughly and constructively
          • Gain an impartial, objective and independent mediator to facilitate discussions
          • Comes to a mutually beneficial resolution
          • Empowers both parties to create an agreeable solution themselves
          • Avoids costs and potential damage for all parties that can come with legal action
    Unfair Dismissal

    An unfair dismissal is where you are dismissed from your job without a valid and fair reason, or if your employer doesn’t follow proper procedures in the dismissal process.

    If you wish to challenge an unfair dismissal, you would likely first appeal the action, then attempt mediation or conciliation and finally, if all else has failed, lodge a claim through an employment tribunal.

    Mediation is a useful process for finding an unfair dismissal dispute resolution between you and your employer. During unfair dismissal mediation, both parties will have a chance to discuss issues, past actions and potential future outcomes which would be agreeable.

    Give our team a call on 0116 201 8566.

    These talks will be mediated by a professional from Dodds Solicitorswho can guide topics, help root out key information and keep talks constructive. Mediation requires both parties to be open and willing to reach a fair resolution. This can be particularly relevant in unfair dismissal disputes where both the employee and employer wish to maintain a positive relationship.

    Through our Mediation Centre, our qualified mediators can help with a range of disputes, be that a business dispute, family disputeor employment dispute. We also can help with pay disputes.

    Mediation is quicker, more flexible and less costly – both in terms of money and stress – than legal action and so, when possible, should always be attempted before tribunals.

    Pay Disputes

    Pay Dispute Mediation Leicester

    Pay or wage disputes can arise when you have not been paid what you were expecting. Often, this can merely be a mistake or technical error and you should speak to your line manager or boss first to try and resolve the issue.

    Here at Dodds Solicitors, if you don’t receive a satisfactory answer, we can help you take matters further with a grievance letter, mediation and, if all else fails, legal action through an employment tribunal. You have rights to be paid full wages, on time as agreed in your employment contract. For the most part, employers cannot deduct from or refuse to pay an employee’s wages lawfully.

    Give our team a call on 0116 201 8566.

    If you pay dispute is part of a larger employment dispute, we can work with both parties involved to come to a suitable solution.

    Pay dispute mediation can be used as a tactful way to overcome problems, allowing you and your employer to have a constructive discussion about the discrepancy, all the while being guided by an objective mediator. Both parties should be willing to be open and work towards a mutually beneficial solution.

    The mediation process is ideal for coming to a pay dispute resolution in a way that can maintain positive working relationships. Only if disputes cannot be solved at this stage, should the potentially long and costly process of legal action be initiated.
