Integrated Mediation Policy?
Integrated Mediation Policy involves the incorporation of mediation as a first recourse to dispute or conflict resolution in every aspect of the business including commercial contracts, through the drafting of mediation clauses. Businesses are waking up to the reality that mediation makes great commercial sense and are increasingly incorporating mediation clauses into their employment and commercial contracts.
Our team of commercial and workplace mediators are highly experienced in drafting enforceable mediation contract clauses and working with organisations to help identify and implement a sophisticated mediation framework to effectively deal with disputes or conflicts at work.
The incorporation of mediation as a dispute resolution or risk management mechanism within business organisations provides a more sustainable and commercially viable option than litigation. It also reflects good corporate governance as it indicates that the directors are more settlement and relationship inclined, which could be an incentive for investors.
