Hosted by the Alternative Dispute Resolution SectionThis session is REMOTE-ONLY participation via Zoom.


Live Webinar Description:

This program will focus on mediation of employment claims and related types of disputes. A panel, comprised of a plaintiff’s employment lawyer, an employment defense lawyer, and a mediator experienced in handling employment issues, will walk through the stages of a mediation of an employment case.  At each stage, the audience will get the perspective from each side and from the mediator. 

The claims being mediated in employment cases often deal directly with DEI concerns (primarily discrimination).  In addition, the panel will address how both lawyers and mediators can work with individuals of a different race, gender, or other protected characteristics.
