Mediation in harassment cases is often a welcome settlement process, but it can present unique challenges to both the client and lawyer. This panel of advocates and a member of the bench will discuss best practices for how to anticipate and handle some of the unique issues that can impact the mediation process and outcome in harassment cases. Topics include the potential need to educate your mediator about harassment, anticipating who should be present at the mediation (or not), supporting an emotionally vulnerable client through the mediation process, deciding what information to share and what information to keep confidential, valuing your client’s emotional distress damages, and helping your client meaningfully decide when to settle.
