Alternative Dispute Resolution

Sexual Harassment – Mediation

Summary:  We were retained to mediate a highly contentious sexual harassment claim just prior to the complaining employee’s scheduled return form a medical leave.  The claim also involved significant retaliation issues.

Result:  After a lengthy mediation, the parties were able to resolve the dispute, resulting in a dismissal of the litigation.  During the one-week revocation period, numerous additional issues arose, and we were able to work with the parties to get each issue resolved in a timely manner so the settlement would not fall apart.  In the end, the settlement was consummated.

Attorney:  Jamie L. Dupree (acting as neutral mediator)
