Mediation in employment dispute settlement in Russia
Mediation is a rather new idea in Russian legislation, although similar procedures have been already used in employment law for decades. However, neither the current Law on Mediation takes into account the specificity of employment relations, nor the Labour Code recognizes mediation as a legitimate way of employment dispute settlement. Alternative dispute resolution is now widely discussed in academic papers and between practitioners. Some of the outcomes of this legislative lacuna and possible solutions suggested by leading employment law scholars are described in this paper.
