Mediation is a way to resolve disputes without filing a “formal complaint” or lawsuit. It can provide a non-public forum in which the disputing parties can discuss the dispute, feel that they are being heard, gain insight and understanding into the perspective of the other party, and work together in exploring and developing possible ways towards resolving the dispute.
