Is workplace mediation compulsory?

29th August 2019

Mediation is a completely voluntary process, both (or all) parties must consent to participate prior to the process beginning. Few people ‘want’ to come to mediation, but most are glad they did. So even though parties may be concerned that it isn’t going to work, or are unclear why they should engage with mediation, it well worth their while to give it a go. Participants also have the right to call a temporary halt or withdraw at any time.
