Employee Dispute Resolution: Mediation through Peer Review
Have you ever been in a workplace situation where a supervisor has made a decision that you didn’t agree with? Did you wish that you could ask someone else what they thought of the decision; whether they would have done the same thing? The Peer Review process offers employees just that chance, using a formalized process.
