Workplace Mediation, Intervention and Investigation


Workplace Mediation and Intervention

As a former employment lawyer, and mediator of hundreds of litigated employment disputes, Ms. Curtis understands the importance of early intervention in employment conflicts as a means to prevent litigation and foster workplace harmony. In the scores of workplace mediations she has conducted, she has witnessed the value to participants of engaging in conflict openly and directly in a safe place - and the benefits to their employers when they do.

Representative Matters

Ms. Curtis works in a wide variety of workplace settings to address a broad range of issues, for example:

  • Staff of psychiatrists in hospital setting - to address longstanding disputes and develop protocols to prevent future conflicts
  • Co-chairs of a department in a medical school - to restore relationship following longstanding conflict and to create clarity of roles and responsibilities, improve communication skills and develop protocol for resolving future differences
  • Supervisor and staff member in a university to address multiple conflicts and improve their working relationship 
  • Law school professors - to recover from an explosive conflict and plan for a more amicable future
  • 50-person department of public entity to design and implement processes to address multi-level, longstanding conflict that included services in consultation, training, individual and group mediations and meeting facilitation
