The article offers information on "Mediation: An Employer's Guide," published by the British Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas). The guide includes a series of in-depth case studies of organisations that have set up their own mediation schemes from scratch. They include the University of Central Lancashire and West Midlands Police. The 190,000 individual employment tribunal claims in 2007-08 could have been reduced by more effective use of workplace mediation, says the guide.
