The article reports on the need for British organizations to mediate with employees to resolve disputes in order to reduce the number of cases going to tribunals, according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Employment tribunal claims cost companies on average £20,000 a year, rising to over £210,000 for companies with 10,000 or more staff. A CIPD survey found that among firms using mediation, only 3% experience employees taking cases to tribunals.
