Employment Law and Workplace Mediation Training (DR110)
This intensive five-day training program equips you with knowledge and skills that are essential to successful workplace mediation. Maybe you have a wealth of knowledge in employment law, but little experience in the process, theories and techniques of mediation. Or maybe you have extensive experience in the mediation process, but are less familiar with the statutory framework of employment law, the potential risk of litigation, and the nature and scope of remedies in employment law cases. No matter your experience, you’ll benefit from this comprehensive workshop’s perfect blend of substantive knowledge of the law and practical process skills.
By the program’s completion, you will be well prepared to become a qualified workplace mediator. You will also be awarded CLE credits for completion of the training.
