The difference(s) between Conciliation and Arbitration

While the process of conciliation and arbitration may look the same at first glance, these subjects have various differences between them. These differences are:

 

Conciliation:

  1. The first stage of resolution.
  2. The Commissioner meets with the parties in dispute and search ways in which to settle the matter by reaching an agreement which caters for both parties.
  3. The parties themselves decide (the Commissioner may give suggestions).
  4. No legal representation is allowed.
  5. There is no calling of witnesses to support your case.
  6. Available only for existing disputes.

 

Arbitration.

  1. The second stage of resolution.
  2. The Commissioner gives both parties an opportunity to fully present their cases.
  3. After hearing both sides, the Commissioner makes a binding decision by issuing an award.
  4. Legal representation is allowed.
  5. Witnesses can be called to support your case.
  6. Available for existing and future disputes.

Mervyn recently assisted me in a case against one of the largest financial institutions. I had really run out of options and Mervyn's knowledge and expertise convinced me right away that he was the one I wanted on my side. Mervyn and his team worked tirelessly and professionally to conclude the matter and I am extremely grateful my 3 year nightmare is finally over. I would definitely recommend Vermeulen Attorneys.read more
