Heather has recently trained with the ADR Group and is an expert Workplace Mediator.
Heather's practice in employment and discrimination law matters has given her a keen understanding of how important good industrial relations are. Workplace mediation is an informal, structured process in which an independent third party, a mediator, helps people in a disagreement or dispute to create a way forward. Mediation introduces a powerful new dynamic to any negotiation or dispute discussion. It enables people to restore and develop healthy working relationships. Workplace mediation is future-focussed - it is concerned with how things will be from now on rather than finding blame for how things have been in the past. It is optional - any party can withdraw from the process at any time.
Heather also carries out Employment Mediations and Commercial Mediations to settle litigation and has experience in Judicial Mediations.
