Mediation (Alternative Dispute Resolution)

Mediation is one of the ways through which issues brought to JCU are handled and/ or solved. It is a very time and cost-effective way to resolve disputes between two parties. It is put into action before resort can be made to court.
The mediation is started with s neutral letter from JCU which is sent to the person against whom the complaint is lodged. It is an invitation to participate in a mediation session. It is delivered to the respondent either by you as a client, through the Local Council 1 chairperson, or by a JCU paralegal.
Both parties are invited to come to the JCU office for the mediationEither party can bring in persons to support an amicable settlement (witnesses, opinion leadersadvocates, etc.).
Duration: Two hours max. for one session. A Memorandum of Understanding will be signed when parties agree on the given case.
