MWI provides Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and their client companies with support services designed to help employees resolve family, employment, and other disputes efficiently and economically. By resolving disputes that would otherwise consume limited resources and often result in costly legal claims, MWI’s neutrals provide a valuable resource for resolving disputes early and often while increasing productivity and morale.
The purpose of mediation is simple: to help employees address and resolve disputes with others that cause stress, instability and uncertainty. Mediation provides employees with an opportunity to put closure on difficult situations with family members, co-workers and supervisors so that they can move forward knowing that the issue is resolved.
Types of disputes to be mediated include:
Workplace / Employment
Any combination of disputes between employees and management, discrimination claims, communication issues
Student/student, student/faculty, faculty/faculty, tenure, inter and intra-departmental, pre-disciplinary matters concerning conduct and academic honesty
Foreclosure, credit card debt, trusts, wills & estates, landlord tenant, real estate and other disputes from clients
MWI also offers the following services to EAPs and their client companies:
