Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment's Employment Mediation Services
Mediation is where an independent person called a mediator helps resolve an employment relationship problem in a semi-formal and confidential environment. A mediator will help you to identify the main issues and find potential solutions. The aim is for you both to come to an agreement. You cannot be forced into a decision or agreement.
Employment Mediation Services within the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) provides a free mediation service to any employee or employer with an employment relationship problem.
Private employment mediation
You can also engage a mediator privately (you pay the fees) for employment or workplace mediation.
