In recent years, we have seen a dramatic rise in Employment Law disputes, exacerbated recently by the COVID-19 pandemic, #MeToo Movement, a proliferation of wage and hour claims, among other reasons. To achieve a quicker, more cost effective resolution of the matters, we have also seen a substantial increase in the number of employment-related matters being resolved through mediation, often times with courts' encouragement.
