Workplace Disputes/Unfair Dismissal

A workplace dispute between two parties can have detrimental flow-on effects to the whole work force. It is important to realize that a conflict that is not quickly resolved via a method such as mediation can affect morale and performance. These types of disputes can also affect the reputation of a business, which can be very damaging.

Similarly to commercial disputes, it is very important to settle workplace disputes in a manner that preserves relationships. Litigation is adversarial in nature and can be very harmful to relationships. Mediation allows for both parties to voice their concerns and understand the other side of the story. The process is also strictly confidential, ensuring that a level of trust is established between the parties and reputations are not harmed.  

Michael B. Williams SC is an experienced mediator with NSW Bar Mediation Accreditation. He is skilled in developing an understanding between each party to a conflict, helping to reach a mutually agreed solution.

If you are looking to resolve disputes over unfair dismissal through mediation, contact Michael Williams today on 02 9231 0077.

Mediation Articles


"A Mediator should never provide an opinion or advice concerning the merits of a case" verses "a Mediator should always offer an evaluative opinion on the dispute"


It is crucial to the success of any mediation that compliance be enforced with the requirement of attendance of the parties in person and an officer from corporate parties with full authority to settle.
