If your business has been charged with employment discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, unpaid wages, overtime or other employment issues, both internal and external mediation may provide a more expeditious and cost-effective solution than litigation.

Internal company mediation offers employers a path to resolve employment law disputes before they become so adversarial that litigation becomes a certainty. It is less costly and can give you more control over the outcome of a case than a court proceeding. Offering mediation within your business not only helps to resolve disputes in a timely fashion, but it deals with these issues internally, so valuable resources are not lost.

Developing a mediation program is a smart way to make sure you are ready to handle internal disputes quickly and efficiently. The lawyers at Raff & Becker, LLP can help you protect your interests by developing a mediation program that keeps you prepared for the future.

Additionally, our attorneys have the experience necessary to make sure the employer puts its best effort forward during external mediation, which is now being required by many federal and state courts, as well as administrative agencies such as the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the New York State Division of Human Rights, the New York City Commission on Human Rights, and other agencies and organizations.

We also offer our own mediation services through managing partner David Raff, who serves as a federal court special master on complex employment law cases, and through partner Susan E. Salazar, who is an experienced mediator and who serves on the Mediation Advisory Committee for the United States District Court, Southern District of New York.
