We assist our clients in resolving matters through either litigation or alternative dispute resolution processes, such as mediation.
In our experience, the principle sources for employment litigation are the termination of employment contracts by the employer, terminations involving employees who are protected against dismissal, unfair competition by former employees, terminations for cause and sexual harassment or discrimination claims. As experienced litigators we assist claimants or defendants in all types of workplace disputes.
Workplace mediation is a voluntary process whereby an impartial mediator facilitates the communication between the parties to assist them in developing mutually acceptable agreements. The mediation is confidential and offers multiple benefits compared to litigation (e.g. it can be more discreet, cost-effective). Using a certified mediator, even when legal proceedings have already begun, may lead to a more effective conflict resolution. As a certified mediator, Karin Rasschaert could help you find an alternative solution to your workplace dispute.
