Edward Power Associates have successfully mediated disputes normally of the type referred to the Rights Commissioner Service or the Equality Officer. This approach often appeals to both parties who may not wish to have a dispute in the public domain and is entered into voluntarily by both sides.

We have also represented a variety of organisations at third party hearings including the Workplace Relations Commission, Employment Appeals Tribunal, Equality Authority and Rights Commissioner Service etc.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Mediation is a problem-solving process used to resolve disputes and conflicts. It is an informal, yet structured process guided by our trained mediator who serves as an impartial third party. Our mediator assists the parties involved hold honest discussions, to feel safe in expressing emotions, and to work through problems in order to reach a resolution.

Edward Power Associates is renowned for getting to win win solutions often in difficult situations. It has to be said that for mediation to work there has to be a willingness to compromise in some way to get a solution and this process is often less traumatic certainly less expensive and more preserving of future relationships than traditional adversarial methods of courts or tribunals.

If you have work or life issues we are happy to help by providing independent non judgmental mediation.

Early intervention facilitates a complete cure, the time to resolve conflict is before polarisation occurs.

Conducting Investigations

We ensure our independent workplace investigations relating to grievance, discipline, bullying and harassment are fair, impartial, prompt and thorough.

Our independent workplace investigators are focused and sensitive throughout the investigation process. We work utilising the Organisations policies and procedures and are guided by the relevant Codes of Practice. We deliver our findings in a written report, which deals with evidentiary matters.
