Mediate or litigate?

On April 6th 2009 a new Acas Code introduced the concept of mediation at places of work. The code encourages the pursuit of early resolution in the event of a dispute at work. But, which is better? Mediation or the Law? And has any difference been seen in places of work since the introduction of the new Code? Can mediation be a real alternative to an employment tribunal?

This session will focus on the benefits of both approaches and will encourage listeners to think twice about dispute resolution strategies.
