Workers working late. Tall building reflected

In this podcast recorded at Ogletree Deakins’ national Workplace Strategies seminar, Sam Fulkerson (shareholder, Oklahoma City), Maria Danaher (shareholder, Pittsburgh), and Mike Sexton (shareholder, Orange County) reflect on the pros and cons of mediation—given the high cost of litigation and the fact that fewer than 2 percent of employment law cases ever make it to trial. Maria, Mike, and Sam discuss what to expect in mediation, covering everything from procedures and logistics to best strategies for optimal cost-benefit resolution. The speakers also cover the benefits and hazards of virtual mediation, including the results of a recent national empirical study completed by an Ogletree Deakins attorney and others on the experiences of employment law practitioners with virtual mediation.
