Employment disputes typically evoke intense emotions on the part of employees and employers. While the negotiation and mediation of such disputes must take into account the facts and the law, parties, advocates and mediators who also recognize and address the emotional issues at play during the course of negotiation vastly increase the opportunities for a successful outcome. This program will address the role that psychological factors play in the negotiation of employment-related disputes, and the practical steps that advocates and mediators can take to address, neutralize and harness them during negotiations to lead the parties to resolution.
