    Susan Grody Ruben, Esq., has a national labor & employment mediation and arbitration practice. She has been a labor & employment mediator and arbitrator since 1998. Before that, she practiced labor & employment law for 16 years. Susan is the Neutral Member of the American Bar Association Labor & Employment Law Section Council, is the Neutral Co-Chair of the ABA LEL National Programs Committee, is the ABA LEL Section Liaison to the ABA Section on Dispute Resolution, and is a former Neutral Co-Chair of the ABA LEL Section ADR Committee. Susan also is a member of the Board of Governors of the National Academy of Arbitrators, a Fellow of the College of Labor & Employment Lawyers, and a member of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals.

This intensive five-day training program is an essential step for individuals seeking to become qualified as an employment mediator.

Some experts have a wealth of knowledge in employment law but little experience in the process, theories and techniques of mediation. Others may have extensive experience in the mediation process but are less familiar with the statutory framework of employment law, the potential and risk of litigation, and the nature and scope of remedies in employment law cases. This program combines training in the two elements - substantive law and process skills - essential to the successful mediation of employment disputes, thus enhancing the ability of experts to mediate these important and difficult disputes. You will gain hands-on experience in mediation of the complex issues of disability, wage and hour, sex and sex harassment, age, race, religion, national origin, and whistleblower discrimination.

CLE Credits

CLE credits will be awarded as follows for participants that attend the entire workshop: 28 skill hours; 2 professionalism and ethics hours.

Susan Grody Ruben, Esq.

Participant quote from Gary Wright.
"I can recommend without reservation the Employment Law Mediator's Training that Cornell offers. I am a Tennessee Supreme Court certified mediator which required significant training dictated by the Tennessee Supreme Court. The training I received through Mr. Scanza's course was far superior to the training required by my state to be a certified mediator. Susan Grody Ruben is without a doubt the best instructor in conflict management that I have ever had. She is brilliant, enthusiastic, and very intuitive. The training materials are complex, but realistic. When you complete the training you will have a solid foundation upon which to build if you want to develop a mediation practice. I recently completed the required coursework for my certificate in Workplace Conflict Management and Alternative Dispute Resolution and will be returning to pursue my advanced training. That is a measure of the value I place in the program. In short, you will enjoy and benefit greatly from the training."
