Mediating Employment Cases

The Key Elements for Successful Resolution

$60 for MBA members | $95 non-members 

Employment cases present unique challenges to resolution in mediation. Sometimes mediation does not result in a resolution despite the considerable efforts of the parties. Paula Barran, a founding Partner at Barran Liebman LLP, and Richard Vangelisti, of Vangelisti Mediation, will present the key elements necessary for a successful resolution of an employment matter. The presentation will cover numerous topics including optimal timing of mediation, case evaluation, negotiation planning, mediator selection including the value of diversity, client preparation/expectations, addressing emotions, and memorializing the settlement.
