Arbitration, Mediation and Facilitation Services: SUBJECT MATTER SERVICE CATEGORIES

In this list, vendors who disclosed insurance information are identified with an asterisk.

Employment Mediation

Many State agencies utilize mediators for workplace disputes. These cases are interpersonal, non-contract disputes that do not come under the jurisdiction of a bargaining agreement. Cases include co-workers, employees and supervisors, small work groups, and management peers. Most, but not all, workplace mediations are concluded in one half-day session. These cases may call for pre and post mediation work and/or conflict coaching.

Veteran's Preference Arbitration

Under Minnesota Law, veterans who are notified of a proposed demotion or termination from employment may request a hearing before a neutral panel. In this instance, state agencies may seek an arbitrator to serve as panel members in the veteran's preference hearing. The panel members are responsible for determining whether or the demotion or separation from State employment meets the just cause standard.

Facilitation

Facilitators are needed for public policy dispute resolution and consensus building processes including assessment, convening, facilitation, process design, and mediation.

Assessment involves investigating the feasibility of using a collaborative approach to address a controversial or complex public issue. Assessment typically includes stakeholder interviews and an assessment report including recommendations.

In a collaborative process the services provided by the facilitator may include process design, project management, convening, facilitation, mediation, developing recommendations and implementation strategies based on stakeholder input and other similar services.

Public engagement may include identifying affected interests and ensuring participation of a good representation of those interests, fostering dialogue and deliberation, facilitating controversial meetings, compiling stakeholder input, and building capacity for active citizenship.
